Description: Bass-baritone Thomas Quasthoff unexpectedly retired from the stage in early 2012. His immense artistry is well documented in this program, comprising a recent master class on Schumann lieder; a 2007 recital of Schumann's Dichterliebe and two Brahms songs, accompanied by pianist Helene Grimaud; and orchestrated Schubert lieder, with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe conducted by Claudio Abbado in 2002.
