-Dieskau. '''Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau''' (born 28 May 1925 in Berlin) is a retired German lyric baritone and conductor of classical music, one of the most famous lieder (art song) performers of the post-war period and "one of the supreme vocal artists of the 20th century".

This agreement finally established peace between the two countries, waived all claims arising from the war on both sides and restored diplomatic relations. Thus, the Bolshevist (Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic) government was accorded open recognition. The former Russian ambassador's palace in Berlin, after being empty for years, had already been handed over. This step added some difficulty to the negotiations of the Great Powers with the Moscow government due to the open hostility that many of the European democracies displayed against the Communist regime. birth_date Commons:Category:Berlin Wikipedia:Berlin Dmoz:Regional Europe Germany States Berlin

of Pushkin, his operas do not display a strong attraction to Russian sources. In the area of art song, however, the vast majority of Cui's vocal music is based on Russian texts. Overt attempts at Russian "folk" musical style can be detected in passages from his first act of the collaborative ''Mlada'' (1872), ''The Captain's Daughter (The Captain's Daughter (opera))'', a couple of the children's operas, and a few songs; many other passages in his music reflect the stylistic curiosities associated with Russian art music of the 19th century, such as whole tone scales and certain harmonic devices (harmony). Nevertheless, his style is more often compared to Robert Schumann Ларош, Герман Августович, "Один из наших шуманистов: Ц.А. Кюи как композитор опер и романсов" "One of Our Schumannists: C. A. Cui as Composer of Operas and Romances" , ''Русский вестник'', т. 180 (1885), p. 985-1008. and to French (France) composers such as Gounod (Charles Gounod) Abraham, Gerald, "Heine, Cui, and William Ratcliff," his Essays on Russian and East European Music (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1985), p. 61-62. than to Mikhail Glinka or to Cui's Russian contemporaries. *Jonathan Brandis (2003), American actor, hanging Commons:Category:France WikiPedia:France Dmoz:Regional Europe France
