5 Gedichte für eine Frauenstimme (Wesendonck Lieder), WWV 91

Fünf Gedichte für eine Frauenstimme (Five Poems for a Female Voice), also referred to as Wesendonck Lieder, is a set of five songs for female voice and piano composed by Richard Wagner between the years 1857 and 1858. The text comes from a series of poems by Mathilde Wesendonck, with titles translating as "The Angel", "Be still!", "In the Greenhouse", "Sorrows" and "Dreams", while he was working on his opera Tristan und Isolde. The songs, together with the Siegfried Idyll, are the two non-operatic works by Wagner most regularly performed.
