Since Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's epoch-making recording in the 1970s, there has been no singer who has devoted himself to Robert Schumann's entire song oeuvre in such detail. Praised worldwide as the most important Lied singer of our time, Christian Gerhaher has now completed the complete recording of all of Robert Schumann's Lieder. For him it is the fulfilment of a long-cherished dream and "probably the most important project in my life", as he emphasises. Accompanied as always by his congenial piano partner Gerold Huber, for the duets and ensembles Christian Gerhaher has been able to enlist the services of closely trusted singing colleagues who are among the best in their field, including Camilla Tilling, Julia Kleiter, Sibylla Rubens, Wiebke Lehmkuhl and Martin Mitterutzner.
