Booklet Distinctions Diapason d'or - 4F de Télérama - Choc de Classica
This collection of all of Schubert's songs for low voice is one of the landmark recordings of the 20th century because it features two of the greatest Schubertians of their era, baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and pianist Gerald Moore. The recordings, made by Deutsche Grammophon between 1966 and 1972, come from Fischer-Dieskau's prime, when he was in his early to mid-thirties, his voice fully mature and its youthful bloom gloriously resplendent. He brought an acute, probing intelligence to everything he performed, as well as a penetrating, unmannered musicality, and those qualities are everywhere apparent in his Schubert lieder. Moore was primarily known as an accompanist, and in that role he was perhaps unsurpassed, but his contribution to the music is no way secondary. His playing has interpretive distinctiveness as well as the instinctive musicality of a performer deeply immersed in Schubert's sound world. The singer and pianist made multiple recordings of many of these songs and while aficionados may prefer a version of a song or cycle other than the one offered here, the version here is never less than superb. The set, which includes 463 songs on 21 discs, should be of utmost interest to any fans of the singer and pianist, and to anyone who loves Schubert, and to anyone who loves collaborative music-making of the highest order. The value of the limited edition set released in celebration of the singer's 85th birthday makes it a terrific bargain. The remastering is mostly exemplary and the sound is immaculate, warm, and present. There are a few technical glitches, like a slight click and skip in the introduction to "Wasserflut," but overall the sound is first-class. The balance is just about ideal; it's easy to shut one's eyes and imagine the performers there in the same room. Very highly recommended. © TiVo

The first set was as good as it gets, the second set was even better, and the third set is best of all. Of course, this is impossible. Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's three sets of the nearly complete songs of Schubert don't really get any better from volume to volume. His voice -- his marvelous voice, the voice of German Lieder in our time -- was sublime in the earliest songs of the first volume and just as sublime in the later songs of the second volume. His interpretations -- the most sensitive, soulful, intelligent, and sublime -- were sublime in the early songs and the late songs. And pianist Gerald Moore was still the accompanist without peer in every song. But the third set is still the best of all because this is the set with the three great cycles -- Die schöne Müllerin, Winterreise, and Schwanengesang -- and no matter how great the individual songs are, the cycles go further into the heart and soul of man. And Fischer-Dieskau goes further, too: his Die schöne Müllerin is love, youth, spring, and death; his Winterreise is love, despair, and madness without end; and his Schwanengesang is almost unbearable in its endless intensity and infinite concentration. One of the greatest sets of recordings ever made, this is fit to stand with Beecham's La bohème, Davis' Kind of Blue, and Dylan's Blonde on Blonde. Everyone should hear these discs. © TiVo

Booklet
Almost ten years after his passing, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau continues to amaze us with his seemingly infinite discography. The great German baritone was renowned for his intelligence and paying particular attention to the text, rendering it intelligible through his excellent diction and using it as the dynamic and rhythmic force behind every song he sang.This exciting collection features concert recordings of a particularly ingenious programme of Lied, words written by poets and set to music by composers such as Goethe, Eichendorff and Dehmel. It features numerous musicians who have all been specially selected, including the quiet and eloquent Swiss pianist Karl Engel, the composer, pianist, and regular accompanist for many singers Aribert Reimann, as well as lifelong friend Wolfgang Sawallisch, a famous conductor and sought-after pianist who has played Lied and chamber music all of his life.The final album in this superb anthology is dedicated to European romanticism, with music from composers from Italy, Germany, England, Austria and Sweden. Recorded at the Hochschule für Musik (The University of Music and Performing Arts) in Munich in 1983 at the end of the singer’s career, it features another specially chosen collaboration with pianist Hartmut Höll. Once again, Fischer-Dieskau’s encyclopaedic knowledge of music goes hand in hand with his exceptional talent for singing. © François Hudry/Qobuz

This is an album that discerning music lovers will find fascinating. As the third volume published by Orfeo of an anthology of late radio recordings by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, it brings together recordings devoted to five 20th-century composers recorded between 1983 and 1997.Maurice Ravel opens this amazing publication. The immense German singer sings and recites the ever-so special music of the French composer’s melodies with just the right amount of mannerism and preciousness. On piano, Hartmut Höll is a dream partner whose fingers seem to glide along Ravel’s silky music.This is followed by a selection of Lieder by Paul Hindemith, setting to music beautiful poems by Hölderlin, Rückert, Claudius and other English authors, with excerpts from the 9 English Songs accompanied on piano by Aribert Reimann, who is also the author of the cantata Unrevealed for baritone and string quartet, written for Fischer-Dieskau, presented in the last part of this box set - the Cherubini Quartet officiates alongside the singer.Also included in this precious volume are the anthologies of Lieder by Hermann Reutter and Wolfgang Fortner, with the collaboration of several vocal artists surrounding Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, whose curiosity and encyclopaedic knowledge never ceases to amaze us. Reutter (1900-1985) was a sought-after pianist-accompanist, but also a specialist in Lieder and a composer writing in a neo-classical modernism sometimes compared to Hindemith and Honegger. Heavily involved with the Nazis, his contemporary Wolfgang Fortner became one of the important figures of new music in Darmstadt and trained a whole generation of young German composers in the post-war years. © François Hudry/Qobuz
