There are so many astonishing facts about Maria Callas...

First, she was born not in Greece but in Manhattan and went to school there. Second, considering her colossal influence and in contrast to the pumped-up, preposterous, overpaid pipsqueak divas of today, her actual international career was tiny - 18 years at most. Third, and in spite of her reputation, her cancellation record was the lowest of any great singer of her day. Fourth, she rarely looked at the conductor during an opera, simply because she could not see him - she was very short-sighted, and often appeared (partly as a result) to be in a trance while on stage. Fifth, she was betrayed by most of those intimate with her throughout her life, and eventually abandoned by many of those who should have known better and who claimed to have loved her. Sixth, she died almost penniless - even her grotesquely rich long-time lover, Onassis, whose marriage to Jackie Kennedy she only discovered by watching the 6 o'clock news, had invested her money in half a cargo boat, which sank. Paradoxically, although she died 30 years ago, her records today outsell every other recorded classical artist, and single handedly keep EMI Classics afloat. Last, hers was not the most beautiful voice of her time, as she frequently admitted. Some days it worked; other days it just didn't.

In the end, those who met her in Paris in the seventies agree that she was one of the loneliest, most desperate of women they had ever encountered, slowly drugging herself to death. "Every day, thank God, is one day less", she told Di Stefano. A summons to tea (for half an hour at most) often lasted until the early hours, with the guest or guests pleaded with not to leave.

It was pathetic and horrible, but it was Callas. It was always Callas, and that was the secret and the magic. We witness on stage a broken woman who sings nakedly from her heart, about herself and her life, who acts with such incredible power and unashamed truth that we stagger back before what we know, in our hearts, is all of her. No artifice here; no vulgar posturings to which her absurd imitators - and there are many - aspire. Gheorghiu, Battle, Garrett - they cannot touch her hem.

Maria - just a woman, who often spoke of Callas in the third person, in trouble, asking, begging sometimes, for our understanding and our love. She deserves it, because there was no greater singing actress in our time. And she was only 53 when she died.Tony Palmer

Fischer-Dieskau’s first recording of Die Schone Mullerin with Gerald Moore displays the singer in his youthful prime. He recorded the work several times again but without the same level of spontaneity which is the hallmark of this reading. A ‘must buy’ for lovers of both Fischer Dieskau and lieder singing. Super-budget price.

Wilhelm Müller (October 7, 1794 - September 30, 1827) was a German lyric poet.

Schubert sits at the piano in the circle of his friends, and it may well be that this company of authors, artists, and other illustrious personalities is listening to the songs of the “Schoene Muellerin” being sung by Johann Michael Vogl, Schubert’s favorite singer. In his drawing, Moritz von Schwind affords us a glance into the convivial atmosphere of the Schubertiades at which some of Schubert’s works may first have been heard.
The song cycle tells of an unrequited love for the beautiful maid of the mill. The mill stream is the constant companion and dialogue partner of the unhappy journeyman miller, who at the end finds his final resting place in the shallow waters of the creek.
In addition to concerts and opera, Hans Jörg Mammel has made a name for himself above all through his interpretations of the songs of Schubert and the composers of the second Berlin school. He is accompanied in this intimate interpretation by Arthur Schoonderwoerd, one of the most prominent fortepiano players of our time.
