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
gets from the sheer physical experience of singing music. It’s infectious. Indeed, he’s remarkably uninhibited, his characterisations more adventurous and unmannered than they would become later. Moore, too, is wonderfully agile, working with the singer’s voice, each note confident and deft." -- Anne Ozorio, MusicWeb International [reviewing the box set,
