Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau Alfred Brendel & András Schiff

Franz Schubert's song cycle Winterreise was written late in his life. It is regarded both as a highlight of the genre and as the touchstone by which lieder singers are judged. To succeed in interpreting Winterreise is the artistic equivalent of a patent of nobility for a singer. The song cycle certainly became one of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's calling cards and it is probably this work that made the baritone an international household name. In this recording made for the Sender Freies Berlin in January 1979, we see two of the leading musicians of their day in the prime of their lives and at the very peak of their art and experience appearing together in the service of Schubert's Winterreise. Both the experienced Schubert lieder singer and the Austrian pianist Alfred Brendel, known throughout the world for his authoritative interpretations of Schubert's piano music - had performed Winterreise together frequently between 1975 and 1989. In 1991, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau finally agreed to perform Schubert's Die Schöne Müllerin at the Feldkirch Schubertiade - he had not sung the song-cycle in public for twenty years. The great baritone belonged to the innermost circle of artists who give this unique, Austrian festival of chamber music its distinctive character. He had performed Schubert there on many occasions, but never Die Die Schöne Müllerin. The pianist András Schiff was another long-standing member of the inner circle, but this was the artists' first collaboration in Feldkirch - and so Austrian Television (ORF) recorded the concert.
