Description
Adding to the legacy of the "big three" lieder composers (Schubert, Schumann, and Wolf) are the 400 songs of Swiss composer Othmar Schoeck (1886–1957), which were championed by his friend and colleague Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. The French CD guide Les Indispensables describes Schoeck as a "grand master of the post-romantic lied," saying that he "carried to perfection a genre initiated by Schubert—that of the dramatic, indeed philosophical, narrative recounted by the singer."

"These cycles were generally Schoeck's arrangements of unrelated lyrics by some of Germany's and Switzerland's finest poets, and pop up in the repertoires of accomplished lieder singers. Three were recorded by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau: Unter Sternen (Under Stars), Das stille Leuchten (The Quiet Radiance) and Lebendig begraben (Buried Alive). All are on Claves, and not to be missed."—The New Leader
