Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau

Born in 1925, baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau trained in his native Berlin until his studies were interrupted by conscription in the early 1940s, and was held in an American prisoner-of-war camp in Italy for two years where he continued to perform Schubert for his fellow inmates. Shortly after his release, he made his operatic debut as Posa in Berlin in 1948 and went on to become an imposing presence on major opera stages, winning particular acclaim as Mandryka, Kurwenal, Barak and Mozart's Count Almaviva but also encompassing heavyweights including Jokanaan, Wotan, Amfortas, Hans Sachs and The Dutchman. He has also championed new repertoire in the concert-hall and opera-house alike, having sung in the world premieres of many works including Britten's War Requiem, Henze's Elegie für junge Liebende and works by Rihm, Reimann and Matthus.

But he became best known as a master of German song: widely regarded as the finest lieder-singer of the last century, his recital repertoire numbers over 3000 songs by more than 100 composers (including all of the baritone songs of Schubert, Schumann and Wolf), and his interpretative originality, textual sensitivity and seemingly infinite palette of vocal colours arguably remain unequalled today. He did much to revive neglected works and the tradition of the song recital itself, and his masterful interpretations of lieder remain a benchmark for singers, pianists and audiences alike. Since his retirement in 1992, his incomparable influence in this realm continued through his recordings, writing and busy teaching schedule.

He passed away on 18th May 2012 just 10 days before his 87th birthday.

Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (baritone), Hartmut Höll (piano)

This DVD release celebrates the life of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, German lyric baritone and one of the most acclaimed Lieder performers of the late 20th century. Elisabeth Schwarzkopf called him ‘a born god who has it all’. He performed and recorded a great many operatic roles and dominated both the opera and concert platform for over thirty years, being regarded as one of the finest lyrical vocalists of his generation.

In these two concerts from the Opera Theatre of Nuremberg, recorded in 1991 and 1992, Fischer-Dieskau performs beautiful and dramatic Lieder by Franz Schubert and Robert Schumann.

Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin, D795

Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin, D795

Live Recording from The Schubertiade, Feldkirch, 1991


In 1991, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau agreed to perform Schubert‘s Die Schöne Müllerin at the Feldkirch Schubertiade - he had not sung the song-cycle in public for twenty years. The great baritone belonged to the innermost circle of artists who give this unique, Austrian festival of chamber music its distinctive character. He had performed Schubert there on many occasions, but never Die Schöne Müllerin. The pianist András Schiff was another long-standing member of the inner circle, but this was the artists‘ fi rst collaboration in Feldkirch - and so Austrian Television (ORF) recorded the concert. During another Schubertiade a few years earlier, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau was interviewed by music journalist Franz Zoglauer. The resulting documentary of singer, painter and private person augments the concert presented on this DVD. The singer speaks of his affinity to Schubert and the composer‘s influence on the whole Lieder repertoire. This is a unique occasion, not only for the listeners in the hall but also for the two artists, who experienced their collaboration on the podium as something quite exceptional. The viewer can see this in the artists‘ animated give and take, their spontaneous mutual reactions, the creative excitement and a rare artistic vivacity. Both remember the evening as a special event, and without any hesitation consented to the recording being issued on DVD to make it available to a wider public.

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Vienna State Opera Chorus, Sir Georg Solti

The centrepiece of DECCA’s celebrations of Sir Georg Solti’s centenary is a limited-edition, newly- remastered, luxury edition [individually numbered] of “The greatest recording of all time!” (BBC Music Magazine, January 2012)

Solti’s recording of Wagner’s epic music-drama Der Ring des Nibelungen was a recording project on a scale without precedent and the first-ever studio recording of Wagner’s masterpiece. Recorded between September 1958 and November 1965, it was masterminded by legendary producer John Culshaw and his technical team under the direction of chief engineer Gordon Parry. This massive undertaking set new standards in both opera recording and the possibilities of the effective and imaginative use of stereo.For the first time ever DECCA presents the most comprehensive Ring edition ever assembled.

The complete Ring cycle is presented on 14 CDs:

2 CDs: An introduction to Der Ring des Nibelungen by Wagner scholar Deryck Cooke + book with spoken text and music examples

DVD: The Golden Ring

The acclaimed BBC documentary directed by Humphrey Burton and filmed during Götterdämmerung sessions

CD: Wagner Overtures + Siegfried Idyll + Kinderkatchechismus

Recordings made in Vienna during the years when the Ring was in progress

Ring Resounding

John Culshaw’s fascinating account of the entire Ring project from inception to completion – first published in 1967 and long out of print – it is an integral element in this special edition. Exclusive to this edition.

Blu-ray disc

The complete Ring on one disc presented as lossless 24-bit files. Exclusive to this edition

“even Solti's detractors have to admit the awesome status of Gotterdammerung, in which performance and recording unite with seamless strength to evoke the power of cosmic, cathartic tragedy. It hasn't been surpassed; it may never be” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012

“Solti himself developed in the process of making the recording, and Götterdämmerung represents a peak of achievement for him, commanding and magnificent” Penguin Guide, 2010 ****

“The wonders of the “Solti ‘Ring,’ ” as it has long been abbreviated, are well known...Committed to disc from the late 1950s into the ’60s, it changed the scope of what was possible in the recording studio: the kind of project that would be impossible today, if only for financial reasons... a poignant reminder of how far the classical music record industry has fallen.” New York Times, 23rd November 2012

“a steal when you consider the benchmark quality of the performances and the lavish attention Decca has expended on the entire package. Even if you already own the set in one or more of its earlier incarnations, this one is worth buying just for the extras.” Chicago Tribune, 23rd October 2012

“it sounds like the original LPs...and by that I mean it is warmer and more enormous than any of the previous CD releases...The sound is glorious—live, warm, theatrical, present...If you haven’t previously owned this set, now you must.” Classics Today

8 CD +1 BONUS DVD

Peter Schreier – "Eight at 80" On July 29 this year, Peter Schreier celebrates his 80th birthday – an opportunity for the Berlin Classics label to honour the legendary singer with a generous box set. What concepts do we most readily associate with this outstanding musician? Being himself mattered to Peter Schreier, and he also liked to be easily understood. His pronunciation was always clear, but in addition to that, he sang the lyrics so as to make sense of them. Without ever sounding affected, he could bring out the inner meaning of a Schubert song as effectively as when he sang the part of a Bach Evangelist. In this sense, he was an unchallenged authority who was never dependent on pretentious gestures. This is surely one reason why he was so popular beyond the classical-music scene.

In the course of his dazzling operatic career, Peter Schreier made a special name for himself as an exceptional Mozart tenor. But operetta and folksong were also in his repertoire. His first love, however, was the art song, and he sang lieder of all periods up to the present day. Bach's works were another great love of his. Nor must we forget that from 1970 onwards, Peter Schreier had a conducting career. He still conducts occasionally, despite having bowed out as a singer in 2005.

The music on these eight CDs has been selected from the extensive Eterna archive in close consultation with Peter Schreier. It covers all the essential aspects of his repertoire, all the fields in which He laid down benchmark interpretations as a singer. The set includes a recording of Schubert lieder that is receiving its very first release on CD. The included DVD features a recent half hour interview with the singer, in which he looks back on a rich artistic life. Film excerpts of a 1971 lieder recital with Rudolf Buchbinder round off the DVD and the complete set – which will delight fans of the tenor and those keen to discover his many facets!

Overture 1912: Deutsche Oper Berlin

A Film by Enrique Sánchez Lansch


featuring Karan Armstrong, Götz Friedrich, Josef Greindl, René Kollo, Jesús López Cobos, Christa Ludwig, Barry McDaniel, Hans Neuenfels, Aribert Reimann, Donald Runnicles, Dietmar Schwarz, Júlia Várady and the last interview with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in 2012

In 2012 the Deutsche Oper in Berlin had its centennial celebrations. Although today’s building was not opened until 1961, the history of the house on the Bismarckstrasse goes further back: it was built in 1912 and opened as Deutsches Opernhaus upon the initiative of a group of people from Berlin–Charlottenburg as the citizen’s opera in opposition to the Königliche Hofoper, now Staatsoper Unter den Linden. The fi lm illustrates all facets of the different eras of this Berlin opera institution from the beginnings until today through interviews with artists closely connected to the Deutsche Oper Berlin as well as a large variety of archive footage that also includes documentations of rehearsals and performances from the last 100 years.

Live Recording from The Deutsche Oper Berlin, 1965

Four-act version, sung in German


James King (Don Carlos), Pilar Lorengar (Elisabetta), Josef Greindl (Philip II), Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (Posa), Patricia Johnson (Eboli), Martti Talvela (Grand Inquisitor) & Lisa Otto (Heavenly Voice)

Deutsche Oper Berlin, Wolfgang Sawallisch (conductor) & Gustav Rudolf Sellner (stage director)

Set & Costumes by WILHELM REINKING

In 1964 Deutsche Oper Berlin still had no General Music Director. But Artistic Director Gustav Rudolf Sellner made a virtue out a necessity and – in addition to the permanent conductor Heinrich Hollreiser and the regular guest conductor Karl Böhm – brought in further conductors from home and abroad for individual productions. For Don Carlos he invited Wolfgang Sawallisch, who since 1957 had been making a name for himself at the Bayreuth Festival, above all with Tannhäuser and the Flying Dutchman and since 1960 had been acting General Music Director in Hamburg. He had at his disposal an ensemble of outstanding soloists. In addition to Josef Greindl and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, they included James King in the title role, Pilar Lorengar, Martti Talvela, Patricia Johnson and Lisa Otto as the Voice from Heaven.

“This black-and-white version in German is a document of a great style, with Fischer-Dieskau in his best operatic role. Fiery conducting from Wolfgang Sawallisch.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2012 ****

“[Fischer-Dieskau is] in marginally better voice than on his famous studio recording of the work for Decca, though it's the subtle physicality of his acting that is the real revelation here. He's by no means the only reason for watching: Pilar Lorengar is immensely touching as Elisabeth...and there's grand, intense conducting from Wolfgang Sawallisch.” The Guardian, 13th December 2012 ****

Deutsche Oper Berlin, Ferenc Fricsay (conductor) & Carl Ebert (stage director)

Set & Costumes by GEORG WAKHEVITCH

The opening of the Deutsche Oper Berlin on 24 September 1961 is always seen in the context of partition of Germany, cemented six weeks earlier, and the construction of the Berlin Wall. The coincidence of the two events did not go unnoticed in the many press reports at the time, with most citing remarks about the city’s circumstances by the then Governing Mayor of Berlin, Willy Brandt: “Having experienced more in the last few weeks than in an entire generation, a city divided by a wall of coercion and shame is once again making music, producing theatre, staging fine international exhibitions and can at last open the doors of its long-awaited new opera house.” For almost twenty years – since the destruction of the former “Deutsches Opernhaus” in November 1943 – Berlin had had to make do with a makeshift stage. Although already in the early stages of a terminal illness, Ferenc Fricsay conducted the inaugural performance. Fricsay died in 1963. Staged by Carl Ebert, the performance featured a cast of singers unparalleled to this day, including Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in the title role, Elisabeth Grümmer and Pilar Lorengar as Donna Anna and Donna Elvira, Donald Grobe, who stepped in at short notice and built an international career on his performance, Walter Berry as Leporello and Erika Köth as Zerlina.

The inaugural performance of Don Giovanni at the Deutsche Oper Berlin is available here for the first time on DVD. The recording of the dress rehearsal on 23 September 1961 was broadcast on German national television simultaneously with the premiere on 24 September.

“The Berlin Wall had been constructed only weeks before, and you can sense a jitteriness in the air...The production shows its age, owing in part to Georges Wakhévitch's frilly period designs, though Ebert's direction is wonderfully unfussy and psychologically astute. Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is the charming Don...The great performances, though, come from Donald Grobe's strikingly tough Ottavio and Walter Berry's bitterly funny Leporello.” The Guardian, 8th December 2011 ****
