Wolfgang Holzmair, Imogen Cooper

Wolf Songs

Recorded live at Wigmore Hall, London, on 19 February 2008
Total time


Two of the world’s most seasoned Schubertians, both long associated with Wigmore Hall, come together for Wigmore Hall Live.

Schubert’s late-Romantic successor as the Austrian master of the art song, Hugo Wolf, is the focus for the baritone Wolfgang Holzmair, a native of Upper Austria, and the British pianist Imogen Cooper, whose training included a period in Vienna studying with Paul Badura-Skoda, Jörg Demus and Alfred Brendel.

This recording comprises 26 of the 53 lieder that Wolf wrote on the poems of Eduard Mörike, born just seven years after Schubert in 1804, but outliving the composer nearly five decades.
