So einzigartig wie die formale Gestaltung des Werks, so extrem sind die Anforderungen an seine Interpreten: Es bedarf zweier gestandener Liedsänger, die im Zusammenwirken mit dem riesigen Orchesterapparat ebenso als Solisten hervortreten, wie sie sich als konzertierende Stimmen in das symphonische Gefüge mit einzuordnen vermögen. Es bedarf eines ausgezeichneten, bestens aufeinander abgestimmten Klangkörpers, und natürlich einer Dirigentenpersönlichkeit, die für Zusammenhalt sorgt und der Großform Geist und Beseeltheit verleiht. Alle diese Parameter fügten sich bei Konzerten zusammen, die am 25. und 26. Januar 2018 im Herkulessaal der Münchener Residenz aufgezeichnet wurden und nun bereits als CD bei BR Klassik veröffentlicht werden
Schubert's songs : a biographical study by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau( Book )

57 editions published between 1971 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 1,473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here, from the greatest interpreter of Schubert's songs--and one of the most famous singers of our time-- is a masterly study of the genesis and development of Schubert's music, revealed in terms of the composer's own life and his growth to psychological maturity. Of the six hundred and eight Lieder that Schubert composed during his brief life, only a very small proportion was widely known until Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau recorded three volumes of them and began to introduce the neglected ones into his concert programs. Out of Fischer-Dieskau's great knowledge of the music of Schubert comes this book. It is unique in that it sets the songs against the background of the composer's life in Vienna, revealing the relevance of his Lieder to the age he lived in. With the outstanding musicianship and complete sincerity that are the hallmarks of his art, the author discusses the brilliance and diversity of the Lieder settings, from the simple strophic to the "through composed" song and the great song cycles; and he deals in detail with the texts, which range from those of Goethe and Shakespeare to the often indifferent verse of the composer's friends"--Book jacket

War requiem by Benjamin Britten( Recording )

54 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public awareness of Benjamin Britten's person and works advanced dramatically -- even explosively -- twice during his lifetime. The first time was in 1945, when his opera Peter Grimes was produced for the postwar reopening of Sadler's Wells Theatre in London. The second time followed the premier at Coventry and the subsequent series of performances all across Europe and North America of the War Requiem. Except to those provincials who thought that milky pastoral was the only idiom appropriate for an Englishman and who also found the young Britten too clever by half, the triumph of Peter Grimes marked not just the confirmation of a prodigious talent; it represented a moment of hope that, for the first time since the death of Henry Purcell in 1695, England had produced a composer of international stature. The impact the War Requiem made 17 years later was wider and deeper by far. Britten, approaching 50, had become an artist whose every new utterance was awaited with the most lively interest and the highest expectations. The War Requiem, moreover, was tied to a pair of events that were heavily freighted with history and emotion: the destruction of Coventry Cathedral in an air raid during the night of November 14-15, 1940, and its reconsecration more than 21 years later. Its first performance was planned as an international event with respect both to participants and audience. Most importantly, the War Requiem was a weighty and poignant statement on the subject of piercingly urgent concern to much of humankind. In the War Requiem, Britten drew on forces larger and more complex than in any previous work of his. The basic division of the performers is into two groups, reflecting the dual source of the words; the libretto stands in a relation of text (the Latin Missa pro defunctis) and commentary (the nine Owen poems). The Latin text is essentially the province of the large mixed chorus, but from this there is spillover in two opposite directions: the solo soprano represents a heightening of the choral singing at its most emotional, while the boys' choir represents liturgy at its most distanced. The mixed chorus and solo soprano are accompanied by the full orchestra; the boys' choir, whose sound should be distant, is supported by an organ. All this constitutes one group. The other group consists of the tenor and baritone soloists, whose province is the series of Owen songs; they are accompanied by the chamber orchestra. - Program notes / Michael Steinberg
