RIP Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau

Not a good week to be a singer with a distinctive voice. I have so many Fisher-Dieskau recordings and love them all

RIP Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, one of the finest baritones ever

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Never heard of him before today, but they played some excerpts of his singing in the news. Great voice.

Your change of avator threw me for a second...Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's baritone voice was pure bliss on his day. Bless him and R.I.P.

Wonderful voice, sad to hear of his passing. RIP

Here he is with the first song of Schubert's "Winterreise" (Winter Journey), appropriately entitled "Gute Nacht"
