I saw Wunderlich in Ediburgh in Sept 1966, his last live performance! The hair on the back of my neck stood up as he poured forth this magnificent music in glorious burnished tone.I left the theater thinking we have a tenor heading for international success and years of pleasure giving. Little did we think that only a few weeks later he would be dead as a result of a fall. Forunately he left a superb legacy of recordings, some taken from radio performances others like those on these two discs are mainly done in the studio.Throughout the recordings are of an accepable standard and the singing of the very highest quality showing taste tone and an innate musicallity shared by only a few of his speices.This pair of discs makes a exellent memento of that evening in Edinburgh in 1966 and one that many other lovers of fine singing should buy up without delay.

This was bought partly to supplement the two-CD DG set of Wunderlich, partly to replace some material I had on LP.
The singing is, quite frankly, superb. The beauty of Handel's "Ombra mai fu" knocks spots off any countertenor, and the set ranges from operatic favourites (many sung in German) to some wonderful operetta songs.
One of the greatest of all tenors

Considering how long ago these were recorded, then this CD has very good sound quality. The CD has my favourites songs, it was a good price and arrived very quickly. I would use this supplier again.

HASH(0x98870b28) out of 5 stars Elegant collection though everything...auf Deutsch! 2 May 2004
By Armindo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Among the lyric tenors, Wunderlich had one of the most handsome voices and a strength not usually related to this type of tenors. One melancholically wonders how much his repertoire could have expanded, had he lived longer.
This new VERY BEST collection has arias of some of his trademark Mozart roles, songs and arias of less popular composers as well as some famous arias of the Italian repertoire. He sings them all with memorable style, unparalleled beauty of tone and - where needed - the right vigour. I only wish he'd escaped the tradition of those decades and recorded the Italian and French arias in their original language and not in German. Only "Ombra mai fu" is sung in Italian and it doesn't reveal any bad Italian accent. Listening for example to his lovely "Una furtiva lagrima" in German is unique for sure but I prefer the Italian version.
His life was brief but the quality of his singing eternal.

HASH(0x989215f4) out of 5 stars Very Best of Fritz Wunderlich 6 Jan. 2009
By W. Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a long time admirer of Wunderlich I could not have been more delighted at the possibility this set gave to explore his development and marvel at his capacity to give the same care to his rendering of lighter works as he delivered in his Mozart and other more serious recordings. Almost as interesting was the excellent booklet accompanying the set with a miscellany of pictures and with contributions from his wife and others.
I cannot but wonder just how great his achievements would have been had he lived and of the distinct possibility that the reputations of the 'three tenors' might have had to be revalued. The tragedy of his death at so early a stage of his career I can feel as a personal loss.
W Kennedy, Melrose
HASH(0x98c08d20) out of 5 stars What a voice!. 5 Sept. 2012
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Those who love tenors will grab this disc. It reveals the sheer beauty of Wunderlich's voice. Providing across the board of opera, operetta and popular songs, his talent is enormous. Sadly. he died in his mid 30's after a fall down stairs. His unique voice is impossible to replace.

HASH(0x98773a74) out of 5 stars Worth Considering 3 Dec. 2010
By Garry Feeney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I can't really add to other reviewers comments about Fritz the singer except to say that he will long be regarded as one of the best. I chose this album because it had particular tracks I wanted. It is, however, a double album which is filled up with a fair bit of Viennese Operetta. This music is not much to my taste and seems rather middle of the road to me. If you can find a single disc option that has all your favourites on it, I would go for that.
