Wolf: Selections from Spanisches Liederbuch

Two singers working at the peak of their skills join forces for this lucid, wide-ranging collection of songs from Hugo Wolf’s spiritual and secular Spanish Songbook.


“Bostridge was at his best in the spiritual songs, whose introversion and anguish suited his tonal palette…Kirchschlager revealed human frailties in Wolf’s depictions of flirty or lovesick individuals, and had something of a triumph with the final song and its almost Wagnerian sweep.”—Guardian
