A Davos Lied von der Erde

January 20 2015

Well, the Swiss tenor Ernst Haefliger was born in Davos in 1919 and died there in 2007.

Das Lied von der Erde with Bruno Walter and the New York Philharmonic. Perhaps I should have posted his Winterreise. At times (not here so much) he sounds like a Swiss Peter Pears. His CD of Alte deutsche Weihnachtslieder is worth hearing. His son Andreas is a pianist. Another son, Michael, directs the Lucerne Festival and has been a WEF participant. Mildred Miller is the mezzo soprano.
