Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Beethoven/Brahms CD finds the baritone partnered by Jorg Demus, the 1966 An die ferne Geliebte quite beautifully sung, much preferable to the recent reading on HMV. Brahms has always been a particular forte of the singer, and the Vier ernste Gesange of 1958 (oldest recording here) and six further songs prove the point.

-- Gramophone [9/1985]
