    She is a Mezzo-soprano

    I have heard it. Ruins Schubert's effects to me.

    I see that Mr Kuerti is the accompanist. With a name like that, he was destined to play keyboards.

    Look at her bio and repertoire, which screams “soprano”.

    I haven't heard the other recordings mentioned, but I have this one with Jonas Kaufmann and enjoy it.

    I guess the real proof is in the listening and as I recall, she sounds rather mezzo on the Winterreise recording. This was done later in her life, so maybe her voice transitioned down with age?

    I forgot about the recording by Margaret Price, with Thomas Dewey:

    It's excellent. If you like a bass voice in this cycle, try Günter Groissböck:
