If we don't return to Schubert pretty soon, some conservative, overzealous moderator might send this conversation to the Diner!   :(

I wonder if Schubert knew about phermones...  :)

Some day, Sir, some day you will grace us with a photographic replica of yourself so we, the ladies at GMG, or gentlemen - can judge for ourselves if a search for you is a worthwhile activity.  :-\

You Lis collect men, I on the other hand women. 8)

I assure you dear Lis, it is worth the effort. I have it from several trustworthy contacts.

The layout of this box with a fine book going with it is a joy to see.
Its on the last pile out of 30 or so, it may take some time........, but I said that already.
The praise it garnered on this board and outside is stunning.

Any comments on this box set? Are most of Schubert's songs and the performances in this set of consistent high quality? Or is this mostly for the completist?

Rubio, The set has had more or less universal praise. Part of its value lies with the notes that Graham Johnson wrote when he devised each disc. However, I have a feeling that the box-set has words, but not the mini essays to each song. Nevertheless, it is a great set to get hold of, especially if you can obtain it for a good price.

Most of the discs are designed around specific singers and contain a mixture of famous and obscure songs.

Schubert's duets and part songs are also in there, it really is very complete.

This set has the songs chronologically and part of the fascination is the constantly changing voices. I know people who have BOTH the original single discs as well as this complete set and will part with neither!

Erato, Now, thank you for that, I had a notion they had been reordered, but thought my memory had to be at fault. So, they will not appear as mini-recitals, rather a systematic trawl through the order of composition. I can see why people might want both; as each way of listening will provide a very different experience.

I'm still waiting for the promised book by Graham Johnson that will include the essays that were part of the original single CD issues but in expanded form.

I had to forward a question about this issue to Hyperion and was rewarded with a prompt answer:

Indeed, and we have been waiting for nearly three years now. Yale University Press will publish the book or books but still we have no information on a publishing date.

Well, I have Ameling and Munteanu and don't feel I need more right now.

But you never know...

Oh, you do need a bloke to bring some specific songs to life and provide contrast. Ameling was a beautiful singer, but in Schubert I find that different singers do bring new interpretations. That these differences tell me more about the song and the poetry. I hope you have texts with Ameling.

Well, I have Fischer-Dieskau and ... some other guy as well.

No, no texts. I just...listen and enjoy the sound of their voices. I really should get texts though.
