Franz Schubert, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Gerald Moore ‎– Franz Schubert Lieder


Deutsche Grammophon releases were neglected in some period by many audiophiles seeing DGG as inferior releases and praising mostly RCA catalogue. I guess age brings the wisdom to us all now many of those with past snobbery picky mind realising their mistake are in the search for many DGG titles. Sadly most of the catalogue was already acquired by music lovers and classical conosseieurs, but you'll still find some of them available.

My very good friend and classical music mentor/tutor introduced me to amazing recording of Franz Schubert with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Gerald Moore. My German is not fully fluent, but Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau singing and royal pronouncing of German was so clear, that I could understand most of Nachtgesang an Schaefers Klagelied (j.w Goethe). This is as lyrical as the best poetry and the purity of musical expression captivate you without any restrains. 

This mesmerising performance and recording goes beyond typical audiophile norms, but it will satisfy even the most demanding ones. Soulful performance by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is enriched by Gerald Moore expertly accompanying piano playing. The interplay between those two is instantly avid and embracing. I was showered with the repeating thunders of emotional impacts and goosebumps. What an experience!

German lyric baritone and conductor Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau sadly passed away last year, but as they say musicians live in their performances forever. 

For me it doesn't get any better for a true analog enjoyment. This is the pure shot in the vein with the maximum portion of vinyl bliss.
