Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, master singer of German art songs, dies at 86.
I saw this morning that the famous German baritone Fischer-Dieskau died, and while he doesn’t relate, probably, to my current readers’ album collections, there was a time when I was in college that his voice had me entranced.
Here’s a sample of D F-D for those who didn’t know his artistry… or for those who do and who will miss him:
