This disc should dispel the popular illusion that Hugo Wolf (1860-1903) is a cerebral, "difficult" composer. Perhaps, in melding words and music, he pays more attention to prosody than most of his predecessors, but his melodies can be as simple and lyrical as Schubert's, as ardently romantic as Schumann's, and his harmonies are innovative and luxurious. Choosing his texts with fastidious care, often drawing on a single poet for an entire songbook, he creates "tone-paintings of the soul," evoking love's joys and sorrows, devout supplication, enjoyment of nature, and ironic, even ribald humor. The performances on this disc, which features poems by Eichendorff, Mörike, and Goethe, give vibrant life to the drama, tragedy, serenity, and lightheartedness of words and music. Bostridge, a famously individualistic interpreter at home in many styles and languages, brings to Wolf an approach that is both intellectually probing and emotionally fearless. He uses his bright, variable voice and idiosyncratic vocalism, with its delayed vibrato and swells on long notes, for utmost contrast of dynamics, inflection, character, and expression, frequently sending shivers down the spine. Pappano, better known as a conductor, is a superb pianist and partner; his introductions and postludes are models of poise and balance, and he handles his demanding, often virtuosic parts with just the right blend of leadership and support. The program contains 24 songs, some well-known, some unfamiliar, all so beautiful that listeners will have to select their own favorites. This recording should help secure Hugo Wolf's rightful place among the great German songwriters. --Edith Eisler

Hugo Wolf's mature period of composition was so fleeting that you could almost bat an eye and miss it. In 1888, he achieved maturity and, in the heat of what must have been half-mad creativity, wrote over a hundred often terrific songs in about a year. Through 1892, he followed up with many more songs, such as the Italian and Spanish song books. The next few years saw intermittent and less impressive composition, then silence, as Wolf succumbed to syphilitic madness in those pre-penicilin days. The recital under review here focuses mostly on the songs setting the poetry of Eduard Morike with a few beautiful selections from the Eichendorff and Goethe songs, all from 1888 and 1889.

Tenor Ian Bostridge polarizes fans of the classical vocalists. He has a high, lyric tenor, which can be heard as affected, with a tendency to dramatic (overdramatic?) expressivity. I on the other hand am a fan. Bostridge's voice is beautiful, he is incredibly musical -- this I think is beyond debate - and he puts thought and feeling into his interpretations. As impressed I am with his wonderful version of Schubert's "Winter Journey" or his recording of Benjamin Britten music done with Simon Rattle, this Wolf disc is right up there with the best of Bostridge's recordings.

The intense musicality can be heard in the Morike song "Verborgenheit" ("Seclusion"), its long melody shaped perfectly with an ideal use of vibrato and pauses to highlight the music's expressivity. Another wonderful moment occurs in the slow central section of another Morike song, "Der Jager" ("The Rider"), which shifts from aggressive "horse-riding" music into a sultry darkness where Bostridge shows off his excellent lower register.

Ever since Ian Bostridge's first Schumann's recordings, followed by his Schubert's interpretations, we were expecting him to approach Hugo Wolf's intricate lieder. Now, with the exceptional partnership of Maestro Antonio Pappano those expections are doubly rewarded. The interpretation is meticolous, both vocally - Bostridge at his best with maturity of his expressive voice and inner grasp of Wolf's unique voice in this genre, and musically - Pappano renders the piano part with the same, oer rather matching artistry, his hands caress the notes. Together they create the dramas, light the fire and and comfort with a touch of humor. Listen to the Eichendorf's group, followed by the Morike Lieder, and finally to the two Goethe-Lieder, and you will surely repeat it immediately, wondering at these two artists partnership and achievement.

Format: Audio CD
I'd like to agree with the Amazon reviewer that Wolf wrote melodies as simple as Schubert's, simply because new fans of great music are always welcome, but that's like saying that Rimbaud is as simple as Edgar Allen Poe. This is difficult music for most listeners--ambiguous in emotion and harmony, often feverish and always intense. It takes a singer sympathetic to Wolf's world-weary, fin de siecle sensibility to do justice to his songs, and I must say that Bostridge, sensitive to a fault, only half persuades me.

That half has to do with his attention to every nuance of the poetry, which is what the composer asks for, to the point of micro-composing by the syllable. Yet this listener can't get beyond Bostridge's androgynous choir-boy timbre, his hollow nasality, the mannered swells, the almost disembodied head voice, the self-conscious underlining--in a word, he's not remotely to my taste in singers. But I bow to his integirty, and Antonio Pappano provides accompaniments that singers can only dream of. I think many fans of Bostridge and some Wolf fanciers will enthuse over this CD. I wanted to--God knows that new Wolf recitals are scarce--but I found that one listen was more than enough.

This is a fine recording and, of course, the music is great. I also bought a Brahms Lieder. Both are recommended.

Wolf leider is superlative.

Bostridge is pretty stellar.

Pappano is a wonderful foil.

simply, a sweet trifecta.

I enjoy Fischer-Diskau's interprations as well. Bostridge's tone brings another depth to this music for me.
