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. 

Today, Michael and Elizabeth Lepock, baritone-soprano husband and wife team, are thrilled to begin sharing their journey with this incredible work. Their original intent was to present a longer program, including close to half of the songs in the larger work. However, because shorter programs were made necessary by pandemic-related changes to Grebel’s noon recital series, today they are presenting a more miniature recital. 

"Special thanks go to Scott King for his superb audio-visual recording and editing, and Scott Knarr and St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, Downtown Kitchener, for use of the sanctuary."
