Has there ever been a less affected performance?


  • Tamino says:

    Beautiful. Entrückt. Quite slow?

  • Julian Elloway says:

    Geoffrey Parsons is the equally unaffected pianist.

  • Ted says:

    I recommend the solo piano version played by the great Gerald Moore.Extraordinary performance.

  • Edgar Self says:

    Christa Ludwig is outstandingly beautiful, as ever. Also Edwin Fischer and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf in their Schubert Lieder recital., and Lotte Lehmann for those with even longer memories.

  • christopher storey says:

    There is a tranquillity to both the song and to this performance which is probably unrivalled

  • Jo says:


  • E says:

    This does my heart good to listen to her sing this.
    Thank you, Norman Lebrecht.
