After their Gramophone Award-winning debut recital of songs by Beethoven, and a double album of Hugo Wolf’s ‘Mörike Lieder’ (with Joan Rodgers), Stephan Genz and Roger Vignoles return to Wolf for the much less well-known early songs to texts by Heinrich Heine and Nikolaus Lenau. It is likely that these little-known songs were recorded here for the first time.
“It would be hard to imagine these virtually unknown songs better performed than here”
“A very attractive programme… superbly controlled singing that goes right to the heart of Wolf’s spontaneous response to the poetry”
“A fascinating recital”
“In sum, another top-of-the-line issue—confirming yet again that Hyperion has consistently the best production values in the business—and, for Wolf’s admirers, another indispensable album”
