Song cycle translations by Celia Sgroi

Gustav Mahler

Author's Note

These song translations are available without charge to anyone who wishes to use them in a concert program or recording liner notes. All I ask is that they not be altered and that I be given credit for the translations. I hope that readers find them helpful and worthwhile.
