It’s Not Schubert, but facinating in its own write!

‘Lieder, Piano Works Melodrama’ by Friedrich Nietzsche is remarkable in that it is the second case of major German religio-philosophical thinkers, who also happened to compose music. The first was Martin Luther, and the two could not have been more different, aside from their Teutonic culture, which has produced well over half of the most important composers of European culture. The style lies somewhere between Schubert and Weill, with stronger affinities to the former. They are not GREAT, but they are really pretty good, but then anything Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau sings will sound pretty good, event the ingredients off a Wheaties box. Very interesting little corner of musical history!
