Anna Ronai, pianist
Hugo Wolf’s Italienisches Liederbuch (Italian Song Book) is an album of forty-six songs, setting poet Paul Heyse’s German translations of Italian poems and folk songs. Known for his deep commitment to creating as perfect a partnership as possible between poetry and musical setting, Wolf composed a unique gem of voice-piano collaboration in each song in his Italiensches Liederbuch. Acclaimed baritone and soprano Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf began the tour-de-force tradition of presenting this entire set of delightful miniatures, alternating regularly between soprano and baritone.
