Notes and Editorial Reviews

Every song Hugo Wolf composed is virtually an opera in miniature. Wolf did not set texts as much as he propelled each word through melodic lines packed with quirky accents, sudden dynamic shifts, and wrenching intervallic leaps. The confrontational yet always supportive piano parts provide an instant stage, scenery, and proverbial Greek chorus. Goethe's lofty texts galvanized Wolf's imagination to amazing heights, from the deceptively lyrical Ganymed to Der Rattenfänger's demonic pulse. Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau grabs these songs by their collective scruff, and summons your attention in this extraordinary 1977 Salzburg Festival recital. Sviatoslav Richter matches the singer's micro-managed detailing and stupefying intensity. He infuses Read more Prometheus' extended, demanding piano introduction with the kind of clarity and power that transcends mere virtuosity. Together with Deutsche Grammophon's 1973 Wolf Mörike-lieder recital, this disc is a precious memento preserving two of the 20th century's greatest recreative musicians in repertoire that doesn't give up its secrets easily. Fischer-Dieskau's diction renders the need of printed texts superfluous, but it would have been nice to have full texts and translations. No matter. If you care an inch about Hugo Wolf, you must hear this disc. [11/1/2000]
