Notes and Editorial Reviews

Schwarzkopf is in her gorgeous, silvery prime, while Fischer matches the singer's seamless legato at every turn, his sublime introductions and interludes sounding like collaborations with God.

There's little anyone can add to nearly 50 years worth of praise and awe-inspired reverence for Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Edwin Fischer's 1952 Schubert song recital. Simon Gibson's new digital remastering reduces the tape hiss a notch or two while bringing the mid-range into sharper focus. Schwarzkopf is in her gorgeous, silvery prime. In each of these 12 songs she welds beauty and meaning into an inevitable whole, without one arch or self-conscious phrase. Fischer matches the singer's seamless legato at every turn, and his
Read more sublime introductions and interludes sound like collaborations with God. Add these qualities to some of Schubert's greatest utterances in the genre like An die Musik, Gretchen am Spinnrade, Auf dem Wasser zu singen, Wehmut, An Silvia, and you've got a gramophone classic that will never go out of date.
