ANNIVERSARIES, GERMAN songs, 19TH century German poetry, GENIUS & mental illness, and MUSICIANS
The article presents a commemoration of the life of the composer Hugo Wolf, whose 150th birthday would have been celebrated on March 13, 2010. Inspired by the poems of Mörike, Eichendorf and Goethe, Wolf composed around 350 "Lieder," or songs, in his short life of 43 years, which wavered between the extremes of genius and lunacy.
The article reviews the books "Joseph Woelfl. Verzeichnis seiner Werke," by Margit Haider-Dechant, and "Hugo-Wolf- Werkverzeichnis (HWW). Thematisch-chronologisches Verzeichnis der musikalischen Werke Hugo Wolfs," by Margret Jestremski, volume 19 in the "Catalogus Musicus" book series.

DIGITIZATION, MUSIC, INTERNET, and WEBSITES
The article focuses on the digitisation of the production and consumption of music. It states that digitization has re-energised and changed how people engage with music intellectually. Migration to the Internet has reportedly led to the proliferation of web sites devoted to music criticism. The article mentions composer-critics like Hugo Wolf and César, Cui who have been replaced by online critics.
