"No Wolf lover can afford to miss [this].

There are numerous felicities to savor, and many more to discover. Listen to how Fischer-Dieskau's rhythmic bite and impeccable diction in Jägerlied still manage to impart a sense of legato, or, by contrast, a dulcet sotto voce in the diminuendos of Peregina I's opening phrases. Who else can get away with outsize dynamics in Lebe wohl and avoid melodrama, yet manage a rare fusion of tenderness and austerity in the often sentimentalized Verborgenheit? I can answer that question in two words: Sviatoslav Richter. This pianist takes not one note of Wolf's frequently unwieldy piano parts for granted, whether making Fussreise's interludes sound simpler than they actually are to play well, or effortlessly sailing through Abschied's wacky postlude with a straight face."
