Notes & Reviews:

When the composers featured on this disc dared to set the poetic works of Victor Hugo to music, they knew they had a challenge on their hands. Yet somehow, they managed to extract from this monument of literature the very texts that would most benefit from their music and between them created a rich and compelling portrait of the author. In this music is contained 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 up-and-coming young bass-baritone Konstantin Wolff has taken great pleasure in tackling these subtly nuanced evocations.
