Known for his precise musicianship and powerful characterizations, German bass-baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (1925-2012) was one of the most famous interpreters of German lieder. Fischer-Dieskau had only spent one semester at the Berlin Conservatory when Nazi Germany recruited him into the Wehrmacht in 1943; he was captured in Italy in 1945 and spent two years as an American POW. Back home, he gave his oratorio debut in 1947 with Brahms' A German Requiem - reportedly as a last minute substitute and without any rehearsal - and his first lieder recital later that year. Fischer-Dieskau made his operatic debut in 1948 as principal lyric baritone at Berlin's Municipal Opera playing Posa in Verdi's Don Carlos, and became known for Wagnerian roles, especially Wolfram from Tannhäuser. Primarily a singer at Berlin's Deutsche Opera, who regularly sold out concert halls until his retirement in 1992, he also appeared at the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), the Salzburg and Bayreuth Festivals, and Covent Garden. Lightly toned. Several pages are separating from staples. Covers lightly creased. Right edge and bottom right-hand corner worn. Top edge chipped on front cover.
