The more experience Hugo Wolf gained, the more the urge to compose for the orchestra and the opera became pressing, even painful. By orchestrating his lieder, he was able to alleviate his unsatisfied desire to explore the full palette of colours in his accompaniments. These extraordinarily skilful arrangements (just listen to the version for chorus and orchestra of Der Feuerreiter!) had an extremely beneficial effect on his international reputation.
This title was released for the first time in 2005.
