International awards for Fischer-Dieskau productions

May 16, 2007 News International awards for Fischer-Dieskau productions

All four audite-productions with historic recordings with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau from the 1950s won international and German awards by now. The latest recognition is the inclusion of the Kerner-Lieder in the Quarterly Critics' Choice (Bestenliste) of the German Record Critics' Award (Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik).

The Quarterly Critics' Choice recommend new releases which merit special attention for the quality of interpretation and for their value to the repertoire. The lists provide a candid picture of new releases which, in the jury's opinion, are of outstanding importance when judged on purely artistic and audiophile grounds. We are very happy about this award!

So far the following productions were released in the Fischer-Dieskau cycle:

F. Schubert: Die Winterreise [CD]
F. Schubert: Lieder Collection [CD]
J. Brahms: Die schöne Magelone [CD]
R. Schumann: Kerner Lieder op. 35 & Liederkreis op. 39 [CD]
