Werner Gura on Harmonia Mundi,the Morike-Lieder of Hugo Wolf

Hugo Wolf (13 March 1860 – 22 February 1903) was an Austrian composer in late Romantic music era, particularly noted for his art songs, or lieder. Wolf’s greatest musical influence was Richard Wagner, but he is best known by his lieder, his temperament and inclination leading him to more intimate, subjective and terse musical utterances. Wolf’s lieder are noted for compressing expansive musical ideas and depth of feeling, fed by his skill at finding the just right musical setting for the poetry that inspired him . This is a reissued recording of Werner Gura and Jan Schultsz recorded a selection of Hugo Wolf ‘s songs, which among Hugo Wolf’s three hundred-odd songs, the fifty-three settings he made of poems by Eduard Morike. Werner Gura’s voice is creamy and full of color, Jan Schultsz is also very good and negotiates the sometime quite tricky piano part in these wonderful songs.
