Schubert's "Winterreise" has undoubtedly been one of the most recorded song cycles since the advent of recording equipment. Although there are a number of fine performances of this extraordinary work (including several others by Hans Hotter, and a darkly beautiful one by Josef Greindl), the Hotter interpretation recorded in November of 1942 is truly exceptional. It grips the listener completely from start to finish with a directness and a profundity of emotion that cannot be described in words, but must be experienced. The tragic shadows that pervade this group of songs (mirrored in the fact that Schubert corrected the proofs on his deathbed) are given substance in Hotter's performance and are communicated to the listener so effectively that one truly becomes a participant in this horrific winter journey.

This being winter, this is the perfect time to dim the lights and listen to the greatest Lieder cycle ever written. And if I were to pick one performance that mirrors to perfection all the varied moods of this ultimately tragic vision of a lonely, alienated young man, the Hotter would take first prize. This is the earliest and vocally freshest version recorded by Hotter, and since it does not defer to any other in its musicality or dramatic insight, this is the one to get. It is incredible that such a huge voice can be scaled down to the most intimate proportions, but that was one of Hotter's great gifts, noticable in opera as well as Lieder. Hotter certainly shows his greatness as a musician who happens to be a singer, the kind of musicality that includes people like Furtwangler and Schnabel. Well, tomorrow evening, I will put on this recording and listen all the way through. ("Nun ist die Welt so truebe, der Weg gehuellt im Schnee...")

Format: Audio CD
Hans Hotter's 1943 recording of Schubert's Winterreise stands as one of the greatest performances of this monumental work. Hotter, better renowned as a Wagnerian bass baritone, scales his voice down for this Schubert song cycle. He was 34 years of age when DG taped this version. Hotter's voice is ideally suited to the darkness and sadness of Wilhelm Muller's poems and he easily held my attention over the long time span of the composition.

Hotter is ably partnered by Michael Raucheisen, one of the finest accompanists of his generation. The very acceptable sound on this Music and Arts is clear and undistorted. It must be noted that the voice is better reproduced than the piano. There is some minor surface noise but this is easily tolerated. Of the many Winterreise versions that I have heard, I place this one at the top of the list.
