Elizabeth Schwarzkopf - a genius in the world of international operatic and concert singers... Her brilliance in interpretation made her astonishing when it came to the Lieder of Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, Strauss, etc., and her operatic roles including the Marschallin (Strauss) and the Countess (Mozart's Marriage of Figaro) provided an ideal vehicle for that beautiful, warm, creamy, deeply intellectual yet emotionally sympathetic voice.

She was beautiful in interpretation and vocal line, and the qualities of her singing really paid off in Lieder where the fine detail of the miniature needed to be realized in powerful yet subtle portrait-painting. One might think that this could mean Schwarzkopf would "over-sing" or "over-interpret" Mozart Lieder, which are not generally thought of as requiring such depth of interpretation as, say, Wolf - but her Mozart Lieder are actually exquisite and very, very beautiful.

"Die kleine Spinnerin", for instance, is given the most perfect performance one could imagine! It's such a simple little Lied, isn't it...? A strophic piece usually tossed off without much detail by burgeoning young students...? But in Schwarzkopf's hands, the humour and story are portrayed with authenticity and respect and great warmth, so much so that the listener hears the song as though for the first time.

The great hurt of "Als Luise die Brief" is wonderfully portrayed. I don't think I've ever heard it sung as well as this; Schwarzkopf sets and maintains the standard here.

"Abendempfindung" - well, what can one say about this exquisite piece exquisitely sung by one of the finest singers of the last century?
