Program notes

The same search for excellence, the same musical intelligence: two legends at the beginning of their careers.

Here they are together in the same film, Christa Ludwig and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, the two German singers developed the art of the lied to hitherto unprecedented perfection, unlikely to be surpassed since they left the stage the same year in 1993. This quest for perfection in the lied did not prevent them from also leading immense careers in opera.
