A gentleman on this very board turned me on to this recording. I'm waiting for the CDs to make it over to the US so I can purchase originals (I've never ordered from Europe and am nervous about it, I guess.) A wonderful singer.

Anyway, check it out, my European friends:

I don't think there's any CD that everyone should own, but this is a nice one of Schubert and Schumann that works wonderfully as a program:


Thanks for the recommendation, Daverz. I listened to this last night and was captivated from beginning to end. Gorgeous!   0:)

Well I can thing of at least a dozen, but for Lieder with orchestra,


You must have at least one Strauss lieder CD. This is it.

Thirded or fourthed or fifth or whatever. I think I nominated this as The One Disc, so it can stand as The One Lieder Disc very happily.

Every time I listen to it, I spend the next month or so thinking the stand-alone Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen is the greatest performance of anything ever recorded.

Well that song would definitely be a desert island choice for me. It's the one recording I play to Baker doubters, usually people who dismiss the singer without actually having really listened to her. They are always forced to reassess their evaluation.

Many people prefer Schwarzkopf's first recording of the songs, but, as she herself said,

Many people maintain the first one is better. It's different of course. The voice is much younger. I don't think the first one is better, although one hears in the second that it is a maturer sound, but then the poems are not poems for a young creature, the poems are that of a mature person. It is never a girlish sound, it must suggest maturity, if anything.

And I agree. They demand the voice character of a Marschallin, not a Sophie. In certain moods I may like to hear versions by Janowitz, Popp, Della Casa, the young Schwarzkopf herself, but I will always return to this one, as the most probing version in the catalogue.

Incidentally, anyone who thinks that Schwarzkopf had an inflated idea of her own value (that Desert Island Discs programme, where she chose all her own records, will dog her for ever), should try to get hold of Alan Sanders and John Steane's Elisabeth Schwarzkopf: A Career on Record. It shows her to be as severely self critical, as she could be of her students.

OK, but you said one.

Therefore, the Chandos/various soloists/Vonk of Diepenbrock's orchestral songs.

I believe that you can get that and the orchestral works for the price of a small round at your local from those nice people at Brilliant!

That is the original Chandos issue at more than a round of drinks at my local.

I'm sure that I saw it on Brilliant somewhere.

Either/or a must on any label! ;)
