We are fortunate that he lived during a time when the recording arts were mature. He will be missed greatly.

I'd say he was one of them:
Those who would have deserved the life they are all dead already.

But he will never die.

A great loss; one of not so many singers being able to make Lied text very believable.

Characterized the media in Hungary, this is a news value:
Jackie Chan no more shooting action scenes.
Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau death is not in the news.

Not a very good week for music. Duck Gunn, Donna Summer & Dietrich Fischer Dieskau all gone.
