5.0 out of 5 stars Meltingly beautiful 15 Mar 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Besides having a keen and instinctive sense of phrasing and shading, Matthias Goerne possesses a voice that is beautiful in color and tone and also has impressive weight and range. His heartfelt rendering of Winterreise is deeply affecting but never contrived or exaggerated. I can't think of any version I would rather listen to. Simply sublime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous Winterreise 26 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Matthias Goerne signs one of the most moving performances of this most moving song cycle. I grew up with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, but Goerne's voice and attention to the nuances of the text is as wonderful in their ways as is the "master's." Goerne is clearly one of the two or three best of the new generation. This is another feather in the cap of the Schubert series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Winterreise 27 Dec 2000
By "tj2e" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Goerne is at the top of his form in this wonderful performance of Schubert's most moving song cycle. Even for Fischer-Dieskau partisans (and I am among them), this is a sterling performance. One of the best of the Hyperion Schubert series. Highly rcommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Preferred Goerne Winterreise 10 Mar 2006
By M Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this disc. I prefer this Schubert Edition to Goerne's recent live version. This is my favorite recording of "Winterreise." Beautiful singing of beautiful music. Buy this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sensitive, mellifluous singing without that extra intensity 23 Sep 2005
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Winterreise is the peak of German lieder and Schubert's greatest song cycle. It demands a wide expressive range and great vocal cntrol. Goerne has much of what's needed, and his voice is very mellifluous and smooth--he almost croons the last few songs. However, the tragic side of Schubert's lyricism hasn't been explored here, much less unleashed. If you want a beautiful skim of Winterreise, this is a very good CD, although I expect more from the pianist than Graham Johnson's unimpressive, rhythmically challenged accompaniment. If you want tragic depth and total commitment, you'll have to look elsewhere.

P.S. -- In his remake with Alfred Brendel on Decca, Goerne make considerable advances in artistry. Brendel's accompaniment is soft-grained, but miles ahead of what we have here.
