ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

They were born in the same year (1860), enrolled at Vienna Conservatory at the same time and temporarily lived in the same flat: Gustav Mahler and Hugo Wolf. Then their paths led them in completely different directions: Mahler advanced to become the most successful conductor and greatest symphonist of his era, while Wolf, having failed in other genres, devoted his creative energy to the art song, in which field he left behind a uniquely vibrant oeuvre. As was common in his day, Wolf orchestrated several of his own lieder. Our programme reunites these two disparate contemporaries and shows what they composed at the same time: Mahler’s First and Wolf’s settings of Goethe and Mörike were all written around the year 1888.
