The edition comprises all of the composer’s letters known today, among them numerous first publications after original sources.
More than 2200 pieces of correspondence run the gamut from letters to the family of the 13-year-old schoolboy the the last, harrowing documents written by the already severely ill Hugo Wolf from the mental institution.
The edition of letters grants so far unknown glimpses into the biography of Hugo Wolfs and into the process of his works’ genesis as well as into his cultural and intellectual environment.
A separate volume of commentary documents all sources and variants and provides information on all persons, places and works mentioned in the letters. With its bibliographic reference and a comprehensive index of people, places and works the commentary is an indispensable companion through the correspondence of Hugo Wolf.
