Notes & Reviews:

This program, recorded between 1953 and 1959, presents one of the greatest singers of our time in performances of the stately and spiritual music of J.S. Bach.

BBC Music Magazine
Taken from a series of recordings made in the 1950s for German radio when Haendel was at the height of her powers, the Isaac Stern-like adrenal surge of these readings galvanises attention.

BBC Music Magazine
Fischer-Dieskau's artistry prevails gloriously over heavy string vibrato, tinny harpsichord and weighty bass. Recorded 52 years ago his distinctive voice, finely focused and intensely expressive, still enthrals.
