Dietrich Flscher-Dieskau
In May 1995 the great German baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau celebrated his 70th birthday. In this special edition he discusses the art of Lieder singing with pianist
Graham Johnson , from the singers he heard as a child in prewar Berlin, through his own contribution, which many consider unequalled, to the singers of the future, to whom he is a teacher and example. Among singers of the past, Elisabeth Schumann , Lotte Lehmann and Tiana Lemnitz sing Schubert, while Marta Fuchs and Maria Müller are heard in Wagner. Karl Erb, Peter Pears , Gerhard Hiisch , Karl Schmitt-Walter , Gerard Souzay and Hans Hotter perform Schubert, Schumann and Brahms. Finally, from Fischer-Dieskau's own discography, songs by Schubert, Schumann, Britten and Ravel. Discs Repeat
