Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, the German baritone considered by many to be the finest art-song interpreter of the past century, has died at 86.

Best-known for his interpretations of Lieder by Schubert, Wolf and other Austro-German composers, Fischer-Dieskau also was active as an opera and oratorio singer and, from the 1960s onward, as a conductor.
