This great composer preferred to sing his own lieder

Hanns Eisler had a composer’s voice, but the expression is inimitable.

    It’s always wonderful and a real lesson in interpretation to hear composers sing their own songs, even if they croak through them: Reynaldo Hahn, Eisler, Samuel Barber… others? And then there are the composers of the Great American Songbook that sing: Johnny Mercer, Hoagy Carmichael…other suggestions?

    Eisler´s music is well meant.His voice perfectly matches the dull,dreary level of inspiration.
