Eric Sams’ 1961 study is a landmark in the establishment of Wolf as one of the supreme masters of German song. Comprehensively revised and enlarged in 1983, it covers the 242 published songs that Wolf wrote for voice and piano, along with the Ibsen songs for voice and orchestra. English translations are provided and the backgrounds to the original poems are fully explored. Each song is given with date, keys and vocal range.

As the legendary Gerald Moore says in his introduction, “This is the most important book in the English language on the songs of Hugo Wolf since Ernest Newman proclaimed the composer’s genius in 1907 … a treasure … indispensable.”

This paperback by Hassell Street Press is a reprint of the 1983 revision.
