Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau--First posted Sept. 27, 2008

I can't resist posting this clip of Dietrich Fischer-Diskau from a 1992 recital of Die schöne Müllerin. He was 66, folks. You can hear it in voice sometimes, but his interpretation and characterizations were amazing!

Just for comparison, here is a clip of DFD in his prime, singing Der Erlkönig in 1959:

There are also numerous clips of DFD in opera, but these song recital clips are effin' amazing!

Here is the Wikipedia bio. I can't be bothered to copy and paste it.
