    Hugo Philipp Jacob Wolf (13 March 1860 – 22 February 1903) was an Austrian composer of Slovene origin, particularly noted for his art songs, or Lieder. He brought to this form a concentrated expressive intensity which was unique in late Romantic music, somewhat related to that of the Second Viennese School .

    There was an appreciative thread on Wolf a while back:

    Do you like Hugo Wolf?


    As to the query about recordings of Wolf's Goethe Lieder, I love Fischer-Dieskau and the early Schwarzkopf (when her voice was young and fresh) best.

    I have a CD of Schwarzkopf's 1958 Salzburg Festival recital of Wolf Lieder - EMI classics CDH 7 74905 2.
    It includes 8 Goethe Lieder. Also a CD which includes a 1962 Concertgebouw Concert and a 1957 recital for Netherlands Radio. Verona 27021. There is always YouTube, where you can here her thrilling

    "Kennst du das Land"

    and

    "Anakreons Grab".

    There are numbers Goethe Lieder by the young Fisher-Dieskau on EMI Classics 7 CD Hugo Wolf collection. Here's a sample:

    "Der Rattenfanger"
