Tinnitus. Last time I was free from this was something like a year or two ago. I am currently again in this blissful (and very rare) state.
I have taken the opportunity to listen to my favourite singer in his best recording. Carpe diem.
It’s Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (1925-2012), and the second of his three recordings of the Bach cantatas BWV 82 and 56.
The first was 1951 with Ristenpart, then 1968, with Richter, and finally 1983 with Rilling (aged 68).
