Is it too much to announce yet another CD world premiere for a singer with such a vast discography as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (1925-2012)? No, it truly is not. That is because the undoubtedly most important singer alongside Maria Callas and Enrico Caruso of the twentieth century (according to Die Welt newspaper) had originally forbidden a release of this live recording. The most likely reason is that this recording made on February 26, 1989 in the Deutsche Oper in Düsseldorf and featuring his fourth wife, soprano Julia Varady (born in 1941) included songs that the baritone, who was to retire from active performance in 1992, planned to record in the studio.
