Format: Audio CD
While the lieder of shubert are arguably the most sensitive and best in the whole repertoire, Fischer Dieskau is indisputably the best lied performer of all times. When trying to have a first taste with this great music the main quesion is where to start? DG's collection of Shubert Lieder's interpretation by Fischer Dieskau is comprised of two huge boxes (9 CD each) and a separate box (3 CDs) with the very famous song cycles. This CD of EMI which is sold in mid-price can be an outstanding starting point to enjoy many of Scubert's best songs. This CD does not include songs from the song cycles so these can be bought later without overlapping. If you have started with the genius song-cycles and don't want at this stage to buy DG's boxes you can have a taste from his other best songs in this CD. Don't miss it.

This album is an absolute must for fans of Lieder and moreover for fans of baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. On this EMI recording- a collection of Franz Schubert's Lieder for lyric baritone voice and piano. Dieskau provides the voice and Gerald Moore is on the piano. It's heavenly music. It would compliment your collection of opera, chamber music or other Schubert music perfectly. Franz Schubert lived and died during the same time as Beethoven and it was likely he was overshadowed by Beethoven's greatness. Nevertheless, after Schubert's death and throughout the 20th century, his music was finally acknowledged as having great merit. With Beethoven, Schubert pioneered the first budding of the Romantic movement that would endure throughout the 19th century up to 1900. Sometimes, Schubert's music comes dangerously close to sounding like Beethoven. The classical restraint is evident in some of the more romantic, lyrical slower movements but the dramatics and fortissimo of the Romantic Era was there in some of the more dynamic allegro passages. Schubert was a Romantic. Tragically, he died of syphillis while he was still in his 30's but he had written over hundreds of great musical compositions and 600 songs. Among his finest are the Lieder, the Winteressen, and his symphonies, among them the 8th "Unfinished Symphony" and the 9th the Great Symphony in C Major as well as incidental music and overtures and a wealth of piano trios and chamber music.
Dieskau is perfectly suited for singing the Lieder. His voice radiates with shine and poetic balance for these simple, elegant parlor songs. Many of them are poetry set to music, romantic thoughts about nature and love, etc, trademarks of the Romantic Age. He set music to the writings of Goethe. Among these is the moving and tragic Die Erlkonig.

Schubert and Fischer Dieskau at their best June 13 2000

Format: Audio CD

Great collection and performance May 21 2005
By Kah Jot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These are wonderful performances and a good selection of songs. Those familiar with Schubert's chamber music will recognize "Der Tod und das Mädchen", which is the basis of the variations in the 2nd movement of the "Death and the Maiden" quartet (D. 810), and "Die Forelle" from the theme and variations in the fourth movement of the Trout Quintet (Forellenquintet).

The previous reviewer is well-intentioned, but evidently does not understand the text of these songs, which makes me wonder if any translations are provided with this CD. For example, he says "Die Forelle, which is the last song on here, is a happier story. It tells of a fisherman and a fish."

It's quite an unhappy story, in fact. However, there should be plenty of information available online about these songs and the poems Schubert set, as well as about Schubert.

The following is not completely accurate: "Tragically, he died of syphillis while he was still in his 30's but he had written over hundreds of great musical compositions and 600 songs. Among his finest are the Lieder, the Winteressen"...

It's true that Schubert contracted syphillis as a young man, but he died (at the age of 31) of typhus. The song cycle referred to is "Die Winterreise", or Winter Journey, not "Winteressen" (essen, to eat; das Essen, a meal, food, etc.)

You will get far more out of this music if you understand German, or have access to decent translations of the text.

The previous reviewer states about the songs, oddly, that "Many of them are poetry set to music". They are ALL poems set to music. Some of Schubert's settings are of poems written by personal friends, some are of poems by minor poets (such as the settings of poems by Friedrich Rückert in this collection). The source didn't have to be Goethe or Schiller for Schubert to do something brilliant with it.

Amazon consistently fails to get the German titles right, except by accident in the case of one- or two-word titles consisting of words without umlauts.

You will never spend a better $7 Nov. 4 2006
By DancesWithAnxiety - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is spectacular -- masterfully performed, beautiful, superlative. I can't say enough about it. Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau was born to sing Schubert's Lieder. Granted, the disk's sound quality leaves a little to be desired, and Moore's piano could stand to be brought to the fore a little more, but if you love music, you will love this. Knowledge of German is not necessary, and indeed may detract from the power of the music and its expression (initially).

Thank you Franz Schubert, Gerald Moore, and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau -- the world is a better place for the cross-centuries collaboration represented here.

The early artist at his best! July 25 2005
By Joel Marcus Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The great thing about Fidi is that he has never made a bad recording. And here he is, fairly early in his career, with his collaborator Sir Gerald Moore, and they seem to have learned the lieder trade from each other. I mean, with current studio recording artists, you've got to imagine they do retakes when they make technical errors. But with Fidi and Moore, you actually hear some muffs now and then. What they really concentrate on is the poetic vision of the works. So that interpretation really is the hallmark.

There aren't many bothering with recordings of these works today. You wonder why? It's because they know that can't do them better than Fisher-Dieskau and Moore. It just doesn't get any better.

You really need to buy this while it's still available and at these rock bottom prices.

If you're not hooked on lieder yet . . . April 21 2009
By Josh - Published on Amazon.com
I had never owned so much as a single lieder on CD before I bought this album. Now I am hooked. The only problem is that I cannot find any other recording that comes anywhere close to this one in terms of quality. Fischer-Dieskau's singing is emotional and evocative; Gerlad Moore's piano playing subtle and understated. I HIGHLY recommend this recording to anyone with an even passing interest in classical vocal music.
