Notes & Reviews:
EMI Classics celebrates the 150th Anniversary of the famed Austrian composer Hugo Wolf with the release of this 8-CD box set. This exclusive set contains some of Hugo Wolf's most notable works including his collections of Morike-Lieder and Eichendorff-Leider. Great singers have long been associated with the name of Hugo Wolf; before World War II Walter Legge was the inspiration behind the Hugo Wolf Society edition, which still remains a benchmark for the performance of Lieder. His wife, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau have long been icons in the performance of Lieder and those of Wolf in particular. In this collection they are joined by singers of the present generation - Thomas Allen, Olaf Bar, Ian Bostridge, Dawn Upshaw, Anne Sofie von Otter, Helen Donath, Brigitte Fassbaender and Monika Frimmer all who have been drawn to his great collection of songs.
