Schubert, Franz

Die Winterreise, D911


Peter Pears (tenor)
Benjamin Britten (piano)


What is so striking about Pearsís performance is its intensity. One continually has the sense of a live occasion and, next to it, even Fischer-Dieskauís beautifully wrought singing sounds too easy. As for Britten, he recreates the music, sometimes with a fair freedom from Schubertís markings, but always with scrupulous concern forthe overall musical shaping and sense of atmosphere.
