Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (1925-2012)
My son is a bigger fan than I am, so I have asked him to recommend some films. I chose "Mondnacht," a song I adore, and I begin to wonder what it was I didn't like about him.
He is very young in this one, surely. I like.
This is a huge contrast. He is much older.
Back to young again for Don Carlo.
I probably wouldn't have picked this one. Oh well.
In my youth he was the most recorded of classical musicians. I enjoyed this selection more than I thought I would, and don't forget I posted him singing "Dover Beach."
