The ‘Early’ of the title refers to both the time in the composer’s life in which these songs were written, as well as the portrayal of young love. An adolescent, love-struck mix of sentiment, naivety, hurt, longing, obsession etc pervades these settings, where a more typically fulfilled romanticism is never quite achieved.
