This is the fourth CD of rare archival recordings of the great Fritz Wunderlich on SWR music/hänssler CLASSIC. This is also the first CD from the Schwetzinger Festival Edition, which will present still many further famous artists. Only original source tapes were used for the digital transfer – not transfers from vinyl.

Fritz Wunderlich was one of the most unusual and captivating tenors of the last fifty years. In his tragically short career, he displayed an extraordinary musical versatility - from masterworks of the early Baroque cantatas to Alban Berg’s Wozzeck. In this recording, made a year before his death, Wunderlich displays his unquestioned mastery. Here he is joined by his long-time friend and accompanist, Hubert Giesen whose sensitive shading perfectly frames Wunderlich’s voice.
