▯ 9/26/16 ▯ Hugo Wolf (1860-1903)  Many people were said to have been drawn to him and his personality.  He had an ability to synthesize the poetry completely.  ***Virtually no other composer of this genre can give a completely different voice to each poet he sets.***  Once he sets one poet he moves on to another poet and never returns to the previous one.  ***1888 Drew from Eichendorff, Goethe, Möricke, etc. He created sounds that were truly unique for each. But his Möricke songs were where he found his “Wolf’s howl”.  He was hyper critical of Brahms  Mostly like Schumann  He liked bringing HUMOR to lied.  Tendentious – He liked to, through humor, bring up controversy.  He was obsessed with Wagner  He was a “bad boy” of the lied.  He went to conservatory and felt like he was losing more than he was learning so he dropped out of school and became a music critic. First review he did was of Brahms. “Banality had found it’s home in Brahms.”  Wolf demanded that the poems be recited before they were sung.  Very important to be able to recite the poem. Once in original language, once in English/native language, then sing it.  Piano postludes and preludes helped to round out the meaning of the poem for Wolf.  Wolf wanted to talk about things that were controversial, but he’s not looking for you to see a reflection of his character/spirit.  His music has very operatic demands.  His songs are so complex , his songs are too hard to understand for most singers, listeners, performers. You MUST put a lot of thought into to understand it.  He went through periods of writer’s block where he couldn’t write anything for years, but then there were floodgate years where he wrote non-stop.  He did NOT like his songs to be transposed!!!
