Hugo Wolf: Letters to Melanie Kochert
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis is a love story. It tells of an extraordinary relationship between Hugo Wolf, one of the greatest masters of the German art song, and Melanie Kochert, the wife of a prominent Viennese jeweler with whom Wolf shared a lifelong emotional, spiritual, and artistic bond. Wolf's letters to K6chert reveal Wolf at his most optimistic, celebrating his concert successes. They follow Wolf through times of overwhelming despair, when his musical failures left him profoundly alienated, overcome, as he revealed to K6chert, "by a feeling of unspeakable emptiness and desolation." And they follow Wolf as he struggled to compose the 250 astounding art songs that are his creative legacy as he descended almost simultaneously into madness.
