Steppenwolf – Hugo Wolf


Italian Serenade, Hugo Wolf

“It is the last great music ever written,” said I with the pomposity of a schoolmaster. “Certainly there was Schubert to come. Hugo Wolf also, and I must not forget the poor, lovely Chopin either. You frown, Maestro? Oh, yes, Beethoven – he is wonderful too. But all that – beautiful as it may be – has something rhapsodical about it, something of disintegration.”

Steppenwolf, Hermann Hesse
