The heart of Schubert, the emotional gamut of Goethe 22 April 2004
By Dr. Robert S. Bean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collection of the Goethelieder is genuinely the "gold standard" against which all others should be judged. I say this because not only have I heard the majority of the works by other baritones (and "Der Erlkonig" performed by two mezzo-sopranos): however, I've followed the vocal development of Fischer-Deskau from the earliest CD I could find (from an EMI CD containing Der Erlko"nig from 1951 according to the booklet's timeline--with Gerald Moore on piano.) Another recording dates from the mid 1960's (Erlko"nig, for example, dated as 1965--again, Gerald Moore, pianist.) However, when I heard this collection of Schubert's Goethelieder, I was entranced. Selections 1-14 feature Jo"rg Demus as pianist (with whom Fischer-Deskau formed a close professional and personal relationxhip) and Gerald Moore as pianist on selections 15-24. Fischer-Dieskau's "Heidenro"slien" is so good that even I play it over and over (although I've heard it so much...Fischer-Deskau gives it a beautiful rendition.) His "Erlko"nig" is such that he gets the four voices of the narrator, the child, the father, and the Erlko"nig so well it is astonishing. Gerald Moore also performs the initial ascending triplet figures on the left hand in paralell octaves so well that it sounds like one pianist is playing the right hand triplet figures whereas another pianist is using two hands to play the left parallel octaves!!
This is a MUST HAVE for Schubert/Fischer-Deskau/piano lovers!!
Five stars hands down and thumbs up!!!!!!!

Prime Schubert lieder recordings from Fischer-Dieskau's prime years 9 Nov 2005
By Alan Majeska - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
DG released this recording of Schubert lieder based on texts of Wolfgang von Goethe in the late 1990s. I bought it in 1999 on the strength of a review in AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, where the reviewer said "Fischer-Dieskau could do it all" - an apt description. Keep in mind that many of these tracks are with pianist Jorg Demus, and are not the same as those in Fischer-Dieskau's 2 big DG boxes (9 disc each) of Schubert Lieder, which are with pianist Gerald Moore.

These recordings date from the late 1950s and early 1960s when Fischer-Dieskau (b. 1925), was in his mid 30s, and in great shape vocally, performing lieder and opera all over Europe, + prolifically making recordings for EMI and DG which were released on LP in the US and Europe.

This is a valuable disc for those wanting a sampling of Schubert lieder, or a sampling of Fischer-Dieskau and aren't interested in collecting all of F-D's recordings, or all the Schubert lieder. The sound is stereo, and is very good: vivid and life like. Even though these were recorded 45+ years ago, I feel Mr. Fischer-Dieskau right in the room with me when listening to these. The last several tracks are with Gerald Moore, pianist, Fischer-Dieskau's long time collaborator on lieder of many composers.

Schubert's sound world is a different, more intimate one than Beethoven, his contemporary. The lieder Schubert set with texts of Wolfgang von Goethe are among his most famous and for good reason: they are among his most inspired works. Listening to these lieder, one can get away from the rat race, from our high tech, cold, mechanical, materialistic world, and have a great musical/spiritual experience. Thank you: Deutsche grammophon for releasing this, and thank you, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau for sharing your great talent with the world! Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau can do it all, to which this disc attests.

Beautiful Voice, But Melodies Not So Much 18 Mar 2013
By G. Charles Steiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This review is from: Schubert: Goethe-Lieder / Fischer-Dieskau, Demus, Moore (Audio CD)

There wasn't a lot of passion or emotion being evoked for me in these compositions, although I don't think anyone cannot be moved by "Der Erikonig." But outside of this one composition, there were just two others that I found stirring: "Schäfers Klagelied," and "Prometheus." The other lieders remain excessively formal and frozen, although Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's voice throughout the CD is a honeyed liqueur, warm and rich.

Great recording! 26 Jan 2013
By Lysan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you're into "Lieder", Goethe poems and Franz Schubert, you'll enjoy this CD tremendously. One of my favoties on this CD - "Erlkoenig", a haunting tune I still remember from my youth. Fischer-Dieskau was known for his beautiful recitals, many critics and fans rated him as the best. He certainly does not disappoint with this one. I have not actually listened to the whole CD yet as Amazon uploaded it to my Cloud player, where I could hear all those wonderful Lieder before my CD even arrived. A very nice feature, by the way. Thanks, Amazon!

Songs of a legendary composer and lyricist by one of the best singers ever. Definitely worth hearing. Also received quickly and in fine condition, which is typical for Amazon.
