Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hugo Wolf absolutely venerated the poems of Eduard Möricke, so much so that he 'could not bear to be away from them even for an hour'. Almost all the Mörike-Lieder burst forth miraculously between February and May 1888, and it is in composing them that Wolf found his own voice. They are indispensable for understanding the subtle, accomplished art of this last great master of the lied with piano.
