I had this recording for years as an LP back in the day (minus the Schubert added to this CD) and played it to death. Great singers paired with great concert pianists do not always make good musical partners. I reference the live recording of the Schumann Dichterliebe that Fischer-Dieskau made with Vladimir Horowitz as a part of a very successful fund raising event for the renovation of Carnegie Hall organized by Isaac Stern. That performance is a bizarre tug-of-war between two great artists who had very differing viewpoints on the work and either didn't get time to reconcile these differences or didn't have the proclivity to do so. The result was ghastly.

Richter, however, seems to have a completely different approach to the great duet for voice and piano that "Die Schoene Magelone" is. In my opinion this recording captures the greatness of the composer's setting as well as showcasing the great talents of the performers. I can think of only one other recording that is as successful which would be the extraordinary recording of Rachmaninov and Tschaikovsky songs by the great Nicolai Gedda and the equally great Alexis Weissenberg. Some Tscherepine Melodies were added to the CD release to further prove the unusually strong pairing of these two great artists.

Back to the Brahms recording...if you know and love these songs as I do this is absolutely the recording to have. If you don't know them...get this recording and experience them. They are marvelous. This CD is a must have for Lieder Lovers.

The Schubert songs are recorded with composer Benjamin Britten at the piano. This partnership is less successful but are worth having as several of the songs are rarely recorded.

Although it can't be faulted as a piece of music making, there is something bloodless and superficial about this performance. There is no real connection with the music on an emotional level. It's just another example of recorded perfection by two big-name musicians performing in a vacuum. They give minute attention to all musical details and yet never seem to get beyond themselves -- especially Fischer-Dieskau.
