The Italian Songbook is a work for grown-ups. Because of its many allusions, suggestive ambiguities, and flirtatious moments. Hugo Wolf must have been particularly beloved by the muses to have written music so sumptuous and delicate, so full of irony and free – all qualities that were not granted to their creator, who lived in poverty. Today some of the world’s most preeminent artists are joining to pay tribute to the composer: Diana Damrau and Jonas Kaufmann as the duo of singers, with Helmut Deutsch voicing dissent, offering support, providing commentary – with an artist of this caliber, the word “accompanying” would not do him justice.
