Schubert Winterreise: In the Shadow of the War


This re-mastered release of a 1952 radio recording of Schubert's song-cycle Winterreise is unique in that it was the first to feature a tenor, and is sung in Schubert's original choice of key. It is the last recording which the pianist Michael Raucheisen was able to make at the Reichsrundfunk in Berlin for his large-scale project 'Lied der Welt'.

The pianist Michael Raucheisen recorded something in the region of 2000 Lieder for the Berlin Reichsrundfunk. As director of the chamber music and song department there, he could call for his musical projects on the best available artists who had remained unscathed by war and persecution. They included the tenor here - Peter Anders - as well as Walther Ludwig and Julius Patzak.

Personnel: Peter Anders (tenor), Michael Raucheisen (piano)
