Notes and Editorial Reviews

... An die ferne Geliebte straightway warms the heart and dispels any notion that Fischer-Dieskau's 'intellectualism' comes between the listener and the song... As it happened, I had not long before been listening to a Beethoven recital...in which the cycle had been sung as it were by Florestan, a man in the extremity of emotional tension. Fischer-Dieskau is more moderate, less conceptualised, more responsive to the prevailing major tonality and no less subtle or moving therefore. Beautiful, for instance, is the way in which the saddened end of No 3 ('meine Tranen ohne Zahl') leads blissfully into No 4 ('Diese Wolken in den Hohen'). And the other delightful reassurance of this recital comes with the quality of his voice, surely at Read more its best around this time, in the mid-1960s... These [recordings are] the fine product of a particularly fruitful collaboration. Jorg Demus has a touch, a refinement of tone, that distinguishes him as a pianist in his own right; but, more important here, he is a genuine, listening accompanist. In the Beethoven recital, Sehnsucht (Op 83) is a good example of the understanding between singer and pianist...
