Many thanks to Eddie for this classic!
Frederica Von Stade’s performance of the ‘Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen’ with the fine collaboration of Andrew Davis and the London Philharmonic Orchestra is a true gem. It is a matter of taste as to whether the mezzo or the baritone version is preferred, but with this illuminating interpretation by Von Stade the scales tip toward the mezzo soprano sound. Hers is a rich, glowing tone with impeccable enunciation of text. Both of these performances rank among the finest available on recordings. Highly Recommended.
