The great German baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is remembered today as one of the most important performers of the second half of the 20th century, a singer who almost singlehandedly forced a reassessment of art song as a genre. But not only did he have a repertoire of more than 3,000 songs, his also career covered a huge range of operatic roles. Here in conversation the great baritone reveals for the last time on camera the secrets of his career. His "Last Words" offer unprecedented insights into the extraordinary artistic life of one of the most famous and prolific lieder singer of our time.
