What is Art Song?

Art Song is a vocal music composition which is typically written for a solo voice with piano accompaniment, and is usually in the Western classical music tradition. These works are often featured in sets or cycles and are presented by a singer and pianist in a recital. Art songs typically use poems that are either independent works or part of a larger cycle of poems. The composers create a musical setting of these poems or other texts, and create a piece that conveys meaning by joining music with text.
