Hugo Philipp Jacob Wolf (13 March 1860 – 22 February 1903) was an Austrian composer of Slovene origin, particularly noted for his art songs, or Lieder. He brought to this form a concentrated expressive intensity which was unique in late Romantic music, somewhat related to that of the Second Viennese School in concision but diverging greatly in technique.
Michael Raucheisen Vol. 21. Hugo Wolf. Das Deutsche Lied: Auf dem Kirchhofe, op. 105 Nr. 4. Michael Raucheisen. Andante Favori in F Major.
Michael Raucheisen, piano. Still ist die Nacht, es ruhen die Gassen, In diesem Hause wohnte mein Schatz; Sie hat schon längst die Stadt verlassen, Doch steht noch das Haus auf demselben Platz. Da steht auch ein Mensch und starrt in die Höhe, Und ringt die Hände, vor Schmerzensgewalt; Mir graust es, wenn ich sein Antlitz sehe - Der Mond zeigt mir meine eigne Gestalt. A man stands there also and looks to the sky, And wrings his hands overwhelmed by pain: Upon seeing his face, I am terrified– The moon shows me my own form! O you Doppelgänger! you pale comrade! Why do you ape the pain of my love Which tormented me upon this spot So many a night, so long ago? hannibalsmusic.
The Hugo Wolf Society Volume One became one of the most desired rarities of the 78rpm era; five more volumes, recorded by a wonderful gallery of singers, were to follow before World War II brought the series to an end. But not quite! In 1981, a careful study of dates and matrix numbers of the Wolf Society volumes revealed that several recordings were held over from one year (and one volume) to the next, presumably due to the problems of getting the artists in the right place at the right time.
