A great but not towering recording,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Schubert: Winterreise (Audio CD)
I bought this record because I am generally fond of Jonas Kaufman voice and art of interpretation. In this case I was certainly not let down by either BUT Kaufman has not displaced in my ranking what I still consider the towering Winterreise, that recorded in 1972 by Fischer Diskau and Gerald Moore. (An interpretation worth listening to is the 1955 mono version by Hans Hotter and Gerald Moore) Why the Fischer Diskau version? For a very simple reason: it "moves" me more than any other I have had a chance to listen to.
I should recommend Kaufman only as a worthwhile addition to a "portfolio" of Schubert's lieder recordings.
