Had it ages ago on a tape that got lost, and truly, I think it is one of the tenor's best performances, he matches the wonderful guitar very well indeed and lightens up compared with one or two of his other over serious or overly re-fained interpretations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 1 Mar. 2007
By bold_strummer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album was a watershed moment for the art of the guitar accompanied song. In the 50's and 60's, Bream and Pears, with the help of their compatriot composers Britten, Walton, Berkeley and others showed the world that the guitar is well up to the task of supporting and emotionally expanding a full, original song cycle.

The next step, taken here by Ragossnig and fellow arranger John Duarte, was to find a historic cycle which would be suitable, in its entirety for a guitar transcription. Die Schone Mullerin works (uniquely?) beautifully, and this classic record is still the best version with guitar, though Bergstrom and Persson have also made a notable contribution to the catalogue.

Ragossnig and Schreier made many recordings in the 70's of Renaissance-Romantic songs, they were the best in those years after Bream and Pears who were perhaps more adventurous for commissioning new works. Today, the finest ensemble of this sort is probably the Hoppstock and Pregardien duo, I also highly recommend Songs of Love and Death, their only CD to date (2/07).

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, intimate and tender 28 Feb. 2002
By Ian Parsons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I should point out from the outset that I tend to be something of a purist with music and so, as a rule, any adaptation of the composer's original goes against the grain for me. But this adaptation for voice and guitar is really so utterly convincing, so seductively intimate and tender, that it really is worth a hearing, and many more hearings after that. The guitar accompaniment is astonishingly loyal to Schubert's piano original,and Peter Schreier sings as if he is there, whispering the story to you and no one else. My favourite version of this cycle will still probably be Ian Bostridge with Graham Johnson at the piano and also the Brigitte Fassbaender version with Aribert Reimann. But this original and unique version will always be a treasure, too.
