Die Wintereisse, is one of the greatest cycles and his performance is legendary was that Brendle on Piano?

Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's exit from this transitory life was a sad day for me and my wife - His artistry meant so much to us.

Вечная Память! Well done, faithful servant - Come and receive your well-deserved rest.

Yes, that was my thought when I watched it

That is sad news, may he rest in peace. I bought Schubert's Die Wintereisse, with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau with a record token, a present for my 21st birthday.
