Hugo Wolf's musical reviews constitute an indispensable element in the Hugo Wolf Complete Edition. Volume I contains all the reviews written by Wolf for the Wiener Salonblatt in the period January 1884 to April 1887; Volume II contains a comprehensive commentary on the individuals, works and historical events mentioned, together with the exact programmes of the concerts in question. Indexes (of persons, and of works), and an editorial report complete this edition, which takes into account all the most recent research findings. Quite apart from the fact that Wolf researchers had long been agreed that a new edition of the reviews was sorely needed, the composer's biting wit gives us an amusing insight into the Viennese musical life of his time.
