Peter Schreier: The 80th Birthday Edition
On July 29 of this year, Peter Schreier celebrated his 80th birthday - an opportunity for the Berlin Classics label to honor the legendary singer with a generous box set. Peter Schreier made a name for himself as an exceptional Mozart tenor, a singer of operatta, folksong, and lieder, and as a conductor. The music on these albums have been selected from the extensive Eterna archive in close consultation with Peter Schreier. The included video features a recent half-hour interview with the singer, in which he looks back on a rich artistic life. Film excerpts of a 1971 lieder recital with Rudolf Buchbinder are also included.
