Students from the Royal Academy of Music return to the ACF London with a special programme of selected Mörike-Lieder by Hugo Wolf, celebrating 135 years since its composition. They are the culmination of one of the most prolific poet-composer collaborations in the history of Lieder.
‘What I now write, dear friend, I write for posterity also. They are masterpieces… about which there is only one opinion among those of musical discernment – namely that there has been nothing like them since Schubert and Schumann.’
Hugo Wolf to Josef Strasser, 1888 (translated by Richard Stokes)
Cerys MacAllister, soprano
