Sony Classical is pleased to announce another ten releases in its increasingly comprehensive series of Classical Masters. These new budget-priced releases contain classic recordings, many of them newly remastered, by some of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. A treat for lovers of great singing, this release features the complete RCA recordings of Thomas Quasthoff, including Winterreise, Dichterliebe, the op. 39 Liederkreis, as well as other famous songs by Schubert and Schumann and a portion devoted to Mozart arias. Reviewing an earlier reissue, Gramophone summed up well what has made this remarkable artist so widely admired: “We are here reminded that the eminent bass-­baritone has just about every virtue called for in practically all the repertory included here. His voice is faultless in tonal production and technical assurance; he always sings with thought for the text; word and note become as one. These assets are controlled by a sharp‚ intelligent mind and an emotional impulse that makes every reading a sustenance for ear and mind.”
