This recording gives a glimpse of paradise. The coupling of Schumann, Beethoven and Schubert presents a superb balance of song styles to keep the listener enthralled throughout - and now to Fritz Wunderlich. I envy anyone who has not yet discovered this perfect lyrical tenor voice, they have yet to hear for the first time what the word musicality really means. Wunderlich's phrasing, his radiant lightness and brilliant diction is beyond comparison in my view. The great tragedy is that his career blazed like a comet for only ten years until in 1966 he was killed in an accident at the age of 35. What a loss to the musical world.
Should you still be unsure because you havent come across the name of Fritz Wunderlich I suggest you google his name for reviews, you will find every review full of superlatives. Buy this recording.
