Five songs by Hugo Wolf / Röschmann

For no reason at all, here are five songs by Hugo Wolf, performed by Dorothea Röschmann at a recital in 2007.

(It’s Friday. I have been dealing with undergraduates all week. I love teaching, but ye gods it’s exhausting. I wouldn’t say that hell is other people in any kind of categorical way – but I am tempted to say that hell is other people when there are lots of them that you have to interact with in person for hours at a time. Afterwards, a cooling down period is required. This is where song recitals become useful. For whatever reason, I find that I cannot both pay attention to Röschmann’s subtle Lieder technique and think about undergraduates at the same time. The former pushes the latter out every time. Thank you, Frau Röschmann!)
