Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In 1978 Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Maurizio Pollini came together for the first and only time to perform this great cycle. Fischer-Dieskau's balance of words and music remains unsurpassed - he also succeeded in creating a mighty, continuous arc of tension from the first to the last of the 24 songs. With his accents and details in the tempi and dynamics, Pollini proved that the piano part in Schubert's songs is far more than mere accompaniment. It is not least Festival Documents such as this that prove how great musicians often bring forth extraordinary things on unusual terrain.
