Notes and Editorial Reviews

The short life of composer Hugo Wolf yielded a host of tiny treasures. The art songs that comprise most of his production are delightful, lyrical and melodic wonders. Though they usually took him only a day to write, their enchanting beauty continues unabated more than a century later.
The songs on this album are based on the texts of two poets: Morike and Goethe. These two men had very different styles, and thus the Morike songs are lyrical and flourishing while the courtly Goethe lieder rely more heavily on counterpoint. Soprano Barbara Hendricks contributes a brilliant performance, her range seemingly limitless as she soars through these beautiful compositions. It is a pleasure to hear her deft, emotive renditions of Wolf's treasury
