Notes and Editorial Reviews

Composers who dared to set the poetic works of Victor Hugo knew they had a challenge on their hands! Yet they managed to extract from this monument of literature the texts that would most benefit from their music, and between them created a multiple portrait: here is every facet of the poet, from the ethereal or sensual lover to the committed political figure, contemplating the world in verse of biting irony or Romantic lyricism. The young Konstantin Wolff has audibly taken great pleasure in tackling these subtly nuanced evocations.
