Notes & Reviews:

Although Hugo Wolf (1860 - 1903) does not enjoy the present-day fame of his contemporary and friend Gustav Mahler, he graced art music with songs of an unusually concentrated intensity that are second to none. Wolf 's most poignant lieder were inspired by poet-priest Eduard Mörike, whose lifelong struggle with the (moral) turmoil caused by an early love affair appealed to similar sexual traumas in Wolf. On this new production, acclaimed baritone Dietrich Henschel performs Wolf's Mörike songs with the Royal Flemish Philharmonic conducted by Philippe Herreweghe. The package also includes a film (on DVD), which dramatizes the content of the songs, exploring the thin line between erotic and mystic love. Both the poems Wolf chose, and the music he set them to, conjure a Wagnerian universe that has been situated, by film director Clara Pons, in the late summer lushness of Upper Austria, in a celebration of sensuality but also a premonition of pending decay...
