Notes and Editorial Reviews

Elisabeth Schwarzkopf's adoration of the complexly expressive songs of Hugo Wolf became very public knowledge when, in 1953, she organized a Hugo Wolf Celebration in order to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the composer's death. She sustained this tribute for the next decade: from 1954 to 1964, Schwarzkopf and accompanist extraordinaire Gerald Moore gave yearly recitals at the Salzburg Festival, seven of those ten recitals devoted exclusively to Wolf's music.
The present recording is of their 1957 Wolf recital with a handful of well-chosen interpolations--especially "Lebewohl"--from their 1963 recital. These recordings have done a marvelous job in capturing the immediacy of the performance. Neither the delicate crispness of
Read more Schwarzkopf's diction nor the expressive aspirations of her tone escape the technology of the day. Her expansive voice, producing trenchant low chest tones at one moment and delicately floating high soft notes in the next, is a sure match for the expansive psychological range of these songs. Schwarzkopf is as at home in the high drama of "Storchenbotschaft" as she is in the divine calm of "Nun lass uns Frieden schliessen" and the mischievous playfulness of "Elfenlied." Read less
