Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Rest in Peace

5 posts in this topic

I just read on NYTimes.com that Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau passed away today at the age of 86. My love affair with lieder began with hearing one of my Mom's old LP's with DFD singing Schumann's Dichterliebe. He possessed a glorious voice and an exquisite, one-of-a kind gift for interpreting song poems with haunting eloquence, poignancy and power. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Herr Fischer-Dieskau.

Here is DFD singing Dichterliebe in the '50's with the marvelous Gerald Moore at the keyboard. However often I hear it, this brings tears to my eyes. Enjoy!
