Who is superior to Elisabeth Schwarzkopf in German Lieder, no one ! At least in my opinion, she tells the story in her songs and what is more: Edwin Fischer plays wonderfully to support her. Everybody fond of German Lieder should by this CD before it is too late !

5.0 out of 5 stars A Major Debt of Gratitude to EMI Classics 1 Jun. 2006
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Modern science does indeed concern itself with the arts when it comes to state of the art remastering of some albums made too many years ago, before even stereophonic recordings were available. Such is the case with this remastered recording originally made back in the aurally immature 1950s. The original recording still exists (it has been worn thin in my collection) but this new edition on CD surpasses anything one could hope for.

But first things first. The Recital here is a shared one: Elisabeth Schwarzkopf offers twelve inimitable Schubert songs with the radiance and inner intelligence that marked her fine career. Her voice gleams and is silvery in the finest sense of the 'German sound'. Though she never was able to pull off the Italian repertoire, she was a brilliant interpreter of Mozart and Strauss on the opera stage. On the recital stage she, as a soprano, virtually owned the works of Schubert, Schumann, Wolf and the other Romantics. There is a wondrous communication in her singing, the knowledge that she is always placing the composer first without mannerisms that would stamp her singing as 'Schwarzkopfian'. For this set of songs she is matched with the equally fine pianist Edwin Fischer: this is a true collaboration. Find a finer 'An die Musik' or 'Im Fruhling' if you can: there simply aren't many as sung by a soprano!

The second portion of the Recital belongs to Fischer and he plays Schubert's 'Moments musicaux for piano, D. 780' as if to the music born. This is magnificent pianism and interpretation. When the entire recital is played it makes the kind of sense that few artists offer today. This is a terrific musical experience. Grady Harp, June 06

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Recorded Edwin Fischer 25 May 2004
By BLee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nowadays who hasn't sung a Schubert song or two in school? But you might never have noticed that Schubert's music could be so sad, even more melancholic than Mahler right after he had lost his son one after another...
The singer here, like nobody else, is going to show you this. And the myth about Schwarzkopf's voice and the way she sang: it attracted a host of top musicians ofher time including Glenn Gould, Furtwangler, Karajan, Geiseking, Richter other than Gerald Moore... they all flocked to accompany her on the piano, despite the fact that some of them were the most renowned conductors of their time!
Never could you hear a more bell-like sound (Big bells) from a piano which is so celestial and dramatic. So much so that even Arrau fell as a Edwin Fischer admirer. Hear this CD and you will see why. The sound of this CD made in the 50s is not really excellent, especially the piano solo part. But it is more than enough to let such qualities come through. And even though Fischer, like Busoni, is known to have difficulties with playing in recording studio, but not this time, not here whatsoever. Well, perhaps this is a discounted version already but it is just SUBLIME ! Highly recommeded.

5.0 out of 5 stars A billion carats treasure! 10 Nov. 2007
By Hiram Gòmez Pardo Venezuela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album deserves to be included by far , among the twenty most elavant masterworks ever recorded.

I don't think to sound exaggerate when I tell you we are in presence of the radiant luminosity of this privileged voice and this remarkable artist, master of masters.

All the set of songs is extraordinary and you won't believe the unsurpassed version of this set of "Musical Moments", performed with such level of divine innocence and glorifying musicality as you have never listened it until now.

Don't leave this record out of your invaluable collection, in case you are an ardent Schubert's fan. It's part of these golden achievements that will always shine in the universe of immortality .

5.0 out of 5 stars A monument to two great musicians--indispensable 23 Sept. 2005
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This recorrding, in good mono sound, has not been out of the catalog for fifty years, and the reason is that no more inspired recital has ever been recorded. fischer offers seemingly simple, sometimes rather slow, accompaniments into which he pured a lifetime of musical mastery, and schwarzkopf rises to that level with singing that is at once pure, sensitive, very ddetailed in phrasing, and utterly committed to bringing out the poetry. All in all, a masterful combinaiton that has never been surpassed, even by them.
