Well let's think about this. I bought one and Ann bought one (unless
she has a review copy) so the admittedly skimpy evidence suggests that
the target audience is people on this list!!! That makes sense- the
audience for lieder is not exactly huge.
For twenty bucks, the DVD and the Schumann alone are worth it., although
I have high hopes for the SCHubert, Brahms, and Debussy. I listened
to the Ruckert Lieder last night- NOT a high point at all. It does not
touch Ferrier, and yet- worth hearing!!.So maybe lowbrow cheapskates are
the target audience - I can handle that.
