12/5 A Beethoven Lieder Recital with Fischer-Dieskau and Shea

Beethoven's lieder (songs) aren't as well known as say, Schubert's, but he actually wrote the very first "song-cycle": An die ferne Geliebte (To my Beloved, far away, a song cycle by Jeitteles) Op.98 (1816).

Today I'll feature a kind of "vocal recital"'s the program:
