About this Recording

MAHLER, G.: Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen / Kindertotenlieder / SCHUMANN, R.: Liederkreis (Fischer-Dieskau) (1952-1955)

One the finest Lieder singers and one of the most prolific recording artists of his generation, the great German baritone, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, possessed a virtually flawless vocal technique, a remarkable ability to convey the right tonal colour and nuance of a musical phrase, as well as a wonderful command of rhythm.This re-issue brings together three of Fischer-Dieskau’s most famous recordings, that of Schumann’s Liederkreis with the pianist Gerald Moore, a partnership which would produce a remarkable artistic and creative fusion over the next quarter century. The 1952 recording of the song-cycle Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, conducted by Furtwängler, was made at a time when the music of Mahler was little known or heard outside German-speaking countries, a bold and inspired choice.
