Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lieder aficionados will need no introduction to Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, accompanied here by Gerald Moore in Eichendorff settings by Schumann (including the Op. 39 Liederkreis), but collectors may relish intriguing rarities by two minor 20th-century composers, Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling and Mark Lothar. For reasons of tone and line, Fischer-Dieskau in Italian opera has always been more controversial, but it’s never less than interesting, while the tokens of his Dutchman and Amfortas are well worth having.
