KIRKUS REVIEW

The poem-texts of over 750 songs in German--and English translation--selected by the renowned baritone. No annotations, but an introductory essay, and indexes abounding. Goethe, Schiller, Heine, and Hesse figure among the lyricists while the composers include Brahms, Mahler, Schumann, and, above all, Schubert, whose songs are scrutinized by Fischer-Dieskau in Schubert's Songs, below.
