5.0 out of 5 stars Oh man., January 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Schubert: Lieder; Die Schöne Müllerin, D.795; Winterreise, D.911; Schwanengesang., D.957 (MP3 Music)
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.

I just bought this set and am very glad I did. Do you happen to know if the grouping of the songs was done in accordance with any plan? Chronologically? By some kind of theme? By poets? Er..random? Thank you.

I haven't investigated for any order. It may be in the cycle of the poems by poet as you suggest.
