An Encounter with Hugo Wolf in his Jubilee Year
Keywords:Hugo Wolf, “Begegnung”, Lied, Eduard Mörike, musical hermeneutics
This reappraisal of “Begegnung,” a seldom discussed Hugo Wolf setting of the eponymous poem by Eduard Mörike, shows that despite its ostensible simplicity, the poem, typically for Mörike, harbours a wealth of ambivalent meanings, which are only further enriched in Wolf’s setting.
