Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fischer-Dieskau and Moore were a dream partnership, both at the height of their powers when these recordings were made.

"For most lieder aficionados two names are indelibly associated with Winterreise: Hotter and Fischer-Dieskau. The latter made at least eight studio recordings of the cycle. My personal favourite is his DG recording with Gerald Moore." -- Göran Forsling, MusicWeb International

"Fischer-Dieskau and Moore were a dream partnership, both at the height of their powers when these recordings were made... All other considerations pale compared to the performances here, which are superb. Fischer-Dieskau is still fresh and spontaneous, confidently revelling in the pleasure he
