Hugo Wolf's Italian Songbook
Director and pianist Benjamin Binder, soprano Sari Gruber and baritone Daniel Teadt perform Hugo Wolf's Italian Songbook, one of the crowning jewels of the art song repertoire. Composed during the 1890s in the artistic and sexual hotbed of fin-de-siecle Vienna, these 46 tiny yet exquisite songs explore the pleasures, perils, and pitfalls of love from every possible angle – the war between the sexes never sounded so good.
