Hermann Prey's legendary Schubert song cycles, for the first time on Blu-ray.

Prey, best known as a master of German art song, was a worldwide celebrated baritone with a 45-year international career at the Met, Bayreuth, Salzburg, Japan, La Scala, etc.

The Blu-ray includes introductions to all 3 song cycles by Hermann Prey and a 38-minute documentary.

"In his finest interpretations Hermann Prey sang Winterreise and Die schöne Müllerin with a captivatingly natural phrasing that flowed organically like a river and as such was the very opposite of the more intellectual approach of his rival, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau." - Die Zeit Online, 1998
