Abstract

Hugo Wolf’s (1860–1903) most pronounced talent was in marrying music and poetry in novel ways, which is clearly demonstrated by his more than 240 art songs. In his early years Wolf composed a series of works for piano solo, published for the first time in 1974 by the Musikwissenschaftlicher Verlag in Vienna. This paper explores these and other formative works in detail, focusing on music-theoretical issues, but also placing them in historical context by means of a brief biography which includes recent discoveries regarding Wolf’s Slovene lineage.
