AllMusic Review by

These 11 CDs released in 2010 is an ideal set to introduce anyone to the lieder repertoire or to Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's prodigious talent. Fischer-Dieskau made his name in this genre of vocal music, and these EMI recordings from the 1950s to 1970 are the ones that won him fans around the world. They include the cycles Die schöne Müllerin and Winterreise by Schubert; both sets of Liederkreis by Schumann; song cycles by Brahms, Mahler, and Hugo Wolf; and many individual songs by Richard Strauss, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Liszt, and others. A great number of these recordings were made with the eminent accompanist Gerald Moore, but other pianists including Daniel Barenboim and Wolfgang Sawallisch are also here. The final disc contains excerpts of radio interviews with Fischer-Dieskau made in 2000 and 2005 talking about his life, career, and music.
