    Default Peter Schreier RIP

    The great German tenor passed away on Christmas day in his beloved home city of Dresden at the age of 84.

    A day without music is a wasted day.

    Sad news. His recording of Schubert’s Wintereisse live with Richter is one of most mesmeric leider experiences

    Very sad to hear. His Mozart Requiem has been my favorite for many years.

    Sad news indeed. The first David (Meistersinger) I ever heard and I was a fan from that day on. I have many discs of his that never fail to delight. Wintereisse tomorrow I think.

    Have just seen this thread, having just started one on the Musicians sub-forum. Please ignore my thread.

    A sad loss, he had a wonderful voice.

    Sad news. I cherish his 'Lieder' records most, Hugo Wolf with Sawallisch and Karl Engel and Der Winterreise with Richter:

    He was a very intelligent tenor.
