SHUBERT-What's not to like?

Ordinarily, back in days not so long ago three separate single compact discs in their plastic jewel boxes would set you, the buyer, back some forty-five dollars. Their cost would be even more money if the music was not on sale. This was the status quo, the rule rather than the exception for a good number of years, especially during the early years in which compact discs made their initial appearance in the retailing marketplace. I mention this because during the time, Schubert's three greatest song cycles: Die Schone Mullerin, Schwanengesang, and Winterreisse

In this case with the Schubert Lieder, there are twenty-one Deutsche Grammophon compact discs with hundreds of Franz Schubert songs for male voice and piano, including the aforementioned (on the last three compact discs!), tucked away in cardboard sleeves in this neat little box.

This is at least the third incarnation for the Schubert LIEDER with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau with Gerald Moore performing the piano, released by DG to commemorate DFD's eighty fifth birthday. The earlier releases were issued at a much greater cost, with the most recent release prior to this one for DFD's seventy fifth costing double the price of this one.

Technically, to me the recordings sound resonant and clear. DFD was well at ease and at home with these recordings captured in his prime with the originally recorded songs, from the late 1960s-early 1970s.

Admittedly, lieder is not for everyone, but I am sure that its partisans believe that ultimately, in classical music at least, it ought to be. I had the aforementioned three cycles already with another performer on another label, together with some lieder by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and Schumann.

First off, let me say that this took forever to download as an MP3. Oh man. 21 CDs. I might have been better off spending the extra money and getting the actual set, then ripping it to my computer. No matter. I'm usually back and forth on Fischer-Dieskau's voice because of some of the types of vibrato he uses or his articulations, but I'm consistantly pleased with his work on this set. It's simply gorgeous. It really has that nice full sound he has, but he really works the pieces in a way that he knows when to be simple and when to be romantic with everything. I don't think I would do anything differently, were I a singer instead of an instrumentalist. I really enjoy the balance of the piano and the voice. As these were all taken from poems, the collection seems to make note of that by always having the voice ride ontop of the piano. Not overpowering, but the voice is always clearly heard. And Fischer-Dieskau knows how to speak with clear, precise diction. A person learning the language could listen to this and translate if they wanted.
Technical aspects aside, this is a beautiful collection, extremely well done with obvious care and thought. I was recommended this collection by professors and colleagues alike, and I could not be happier.

This is a very famous set, and it is very good indeed. At the price it's a steal. But seek out an mp3 of a track or two. You are getting 25 hours of one singer. If you don't like his voice -- most do, some don't -- then you should know first.

The sound is top notch late 60s sound, with simple miking. The voice is a favored a bit over the piano, but its not a problem.

All recording date from 1966-1972, when DFD was still in his prime.

The value of this cd set is incredible. Almost 500 songs of shubert lieder all in one package. Dieskau has an amazing voice that will ever be associated with german lieder. The recording quality is great.
