DFD, no more.

The great baritone,  Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau died last week. I have been out of touch with matters musical for some time so it was quite by accident that I discovered the fact. 
Listen to him in Schubert's lovely Im Fruhling, accompanied by Richter, here.  A recording of a rather humourous Schubert song, with Gerald Moore, the pianist he was most associated with, is here. The Economist has a nice obituary.
