"..... watching Quasthoff sing "Der Leiermann" is a really unique experience in the world of recorded music on DVD nowadays, a deeply touching moment of absolute union between music and singer, between composer and performer, like his face shows in all the song, and
like his voice sings"

from Franz Schubert's song cycle "Die Winterreise", op. 89, D. 911

Thomas Quasthoff, baritone
Daniel Barenboim, piano

Filmed live at the Berlin Philharmonie on 22 March 2005
Drueben hinterm Dorfe steht ein Leiermann
und mit starren Fingern dreht er, was er kann.
Barfuss auf dem eise wankt er hin und her
und sein kleiner Teller bleibt ihm immer leer.

Keiner mag ihn hoeren, keiner sieht ihn an,
und die Hunde knurren um den alten Mann.
Und er laesst es gehen alles, wie es will,
dreht, und seine Leier steht ihm nimmer still.

Wunderlicher alter, soll ich mit dir geh'n?
Willst zu meinen Liedern deine Leier dreh'n?
