The Guardian has an interview with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. Who is he, you may ask. He is one of the finest living performers of lieder. When I was in college, I wrote a paper on Schubert for my music history class. In preparation, I listened to Fischer-Dieskau’s wonderful performance of Schubert’s Der Erlkonig and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf’s perfect version of “Gretchen am Spinradde”. My father is a big fan of Fischer-Dieskau, and I strongly recommend buying one of his CDs of lieder. I have yet to do so, and my CD collection is really lacking.
