Magnificent Imogen Cooper and emerging singer stars accompany listeners on a musical journey by Wolf into the complex maze of love. The colourful piano part casts both light and shadow on the lovers’ dialogue as they travel along. At a time when grand emotions were inspiring many composers to stretch the boundaries of music, Wolf’s concise idiom signposted a late-Romantic path marked by succinctness of expression.
