The most beautiful German folk songs sung by Peter Schreier, tenor of the century. In 1975 the GDR label Eterna released the record 'Peter Schreier singt Volkslieder'.
This program was recorded almost 45 years ago in Leipzig with great attention to detail. Sensitive and powerful arrangements, an outstanding interpretation and of course the impressive line-up of artists: Peter Schreier, musicians of the Gewandhausorchester and Thomanerchor Leipzig as well as the Leipziger Rundfunkchor. Admittedly: today such a programme with German folk songs seems to have fallen out of time. And yet in this timeless recording you can discover wonderful song melodies, old reverential verses, the velvety soft timbre of Peter Schreier or simply that one finds oneself quietly humming along with well-known sages.
