This is a must for all lovers of Schubert leider - the sheer beauty of the voice, the sheen and the phrasing are marvelous, almost perfection. His feeling for Schubert is clear and translates as well now, despite the years. I still cannot find a performer to surpass Mr. Schiotz. I cannot recommend this album highly enough despite the lighter pieces at the end of the CD. I understand in professional circles he is still considered the best Schubert leider singer. I hope everyone reading will test the examples and see for themselves. An opportunity not to be missed.
