The original LP (or was it two LPs? "Favourite Schubert Songs" replaced "Popular Songs"in the catalogue, but the first LP was a nicer collection!) was a classic, and catches DFD's voice at its best, past the croony adolescent phase of the 1950s (which some prefer!) mature, more meaningful interpretations, and extended range and vocal technique. By then life and personal tragedy had enhanced his artistry. This is the Fischer-Dieskau who reigned supreme in Schubert and other lieder recitals in the 1960s and 1970s faithfully captured by EMI in the studio.

The CD transfer is very good but not a patch on the original LP sound, I am not joking about that! Also, a niggling point, why on earth has EMI left out such gems as the contrasting Lachen und Weinen and the beautiful poignant (by the widowed singer) Dass sie hier gewesen? Or the outstanding Auf der Riesenkoppe, or for that matter, the spine tingling Waldesnacht? You really have to dig about in DFD'S CDs to find that, but it is a splendid song, very muscular and "Erlkonig like", a good anti-dote to the sweeter stuff, and deserving of space on a compilation disc such as this.

So it's not that great as a CD compared with the original (first!) LP - where the songs were REALLY POPULAR ("Popular Schubert Songs" was its title) as another reviewer mentions the compilation contains many songs that would not be my first choice, and must stem from somebody's decision at EMI to mix in a few of the heavier more serious works which to my mind spoil it: there is plenty of gloom high minded and serious stuff on offer on the Orfeo label or even later, towards the end of his career in the 1980s when DFD was simply re-recording his repertoire with more than willing celebrity partners such as Barenboim, Richter and Brendel.

Dieter Fischer-Dieskau is - to my mind - THE unsurpassed interpreter of Schubert's Lieder. And so, I ordered what I expected to be the CD version of the LP in Norway and the cassette I had in Nepal. That it is - with one irritating exception: there exist two Schubert 'Der Wanderer' Lieder. And this one is D.649, which is not the better-known one (D. 493) that concludes resoundingly 'Dort wo du nicht bist/dort ist das Glück'.A minor point, but it's one of my favourites, so the insufficient product information here led to a disappointment. (Please - provide more complete content listings?) But - his Erlkönig is as stirring as ever!

Twenty-one of Schubert’s lieder on a single EMI ‘encore’ CD, tt 69’07, performed by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, 1925-2012, and Gerald Moore, 1899-1987, a duo unrivalled in the songs of Romantic composers.

The majority of the songs were recorded in 1965 with ‘Erlkönig’ being from 1958 and ‘Sei mir gegrüsst!’ and ‘Du bist die Ruh’’ from 1962. The transfers faithfully reproduce the timbre of the voice and the range and expressiveness of Moore’s accompaniment.

Whilst the power of ‘Erlkönig’, here sung last, never ceases to send shivers up my spine, it is the sensitivity and eloquence of Fischer-Dieskau’s voice in ‘Litanei auf das Fest Aller Seelen’, ‘Sei mir gegrüsst!’ and ‘Ständchen [Horch, horch]’ that I kept returning as well as the glowing ‘Der Jüngling an der Quelle’ and the brief ‘Der Heimweh’, just 1’23 of perfection.

Not to be outdone, Moore brings a degree of spontaneity to ‘Die Forelle’ that allows one to hear it as if for the first time. The expressiveness of both pianist and baritone in ‘Erlkönig’ is accentuated by their long experience of working together, they first recorded together in 1951, and they perform in this song and, indeed all 21 songs, as a single complex and sensitive musical instrument.

Now that all of Fischer-Dieskau’s recordings of Schubert’s lieder are available it is less relevant to point to those that are not included here [only 21 out of more than 600] but the disc includes a diverse selection of well-known [‘Der Tod und das Mädchen’, ‘Heidenröslein’ and ‘Die Forelle’ and ‘Erlkönig’], less familiar [the D 649 setting of ‘Der Wanderer’] and, to me, the unknown [‘Auf die Entfernte’, ‘Das Zügenglöcklein’, ‘Der zürnende Barde’ and ‘Der Strom’].

This was a classic disc by Dietrich Fischer-Diskau and Gerald Moore, supreme interpreters of Schubert lieder. The recording has stood up well and was in good condition.
