After their Gramophone Award-winning debut recital of songs by Beethoven, and a double album of Hugo Wolf’s ‘Mörike Lieder’ (with Joan Rodgers), Stephan Genz and Roger Vignoles return to Wolf for the much less well-known early songs to texts by Heinrich Heine and Nikolaus Lenau. It is likely that these little-known songs were recorded here for the first time.

It would be hard to imagine these virtually unknown songs better performed than here’ - The Daily Telegraph

A very attractive programme… superbly controlled singing that goes right to the heart of Wolf’s spontaneous response to the poetry’ - International Record Review

In sum, another top-of-the-line issue—confirming yet again that Hyperion has consistently the best production values in the business - and, for Wolf’s admirers, another indispensable album’ - Fanfare, USA

The programme is sung throughout with easeful tonal beauty; and Roger Vignoles is at his glorious best as he reveals the wonders of Wolf’s writing for the piano’ - Musical Opinion

Genz has a chocolate-honey sound, an ability to colour his voice with every shade of emotion, and a thrilling dramatic presence’ - Classic FM Magazine
