Enterprising musicians such as John Aler and a learned company from Concordia University have recently registered their several offerings to the philosopher-musician. But it has, perhaps inevitably, taken Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau to convince us that the writer really was as ‘profoundly a musician’ as he liked to think. With Aribert Reimann and Elmar Budde, he offers 15 songs, the melodrama ‘Das zerbrochene Ringlein’, and the ‘Sylvesternacht’ and ‘Manfred Meditation’ in their piano duet versions. Hilary Finch
