"Borrowing from the vocabulary of Julia Kristeva, Barthes [in "The Grain of the Voice"] coins the expressions phenosong and geno-song in order to mark the differences in vocal artistry between Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Charles Panzera, lamenting in the former the absence of corporeal diction which produces the quality of grain he admires in Panzera's singing: "With FD, I seem only to hear the lungs, never the tongue, the glottis, the teeth, the mucous membranes, the nose.""--Studies in 20th Century Literature

Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (28 May 1925 – 18 May 2012) was a German lyric baritone and conductor of classical music, one of the most famous Lieder (art song) performers of the post-war period, best known as a singer of Franz Schubert's Lieder, particularly "Winterreise" of which his recordings with accompanist Gerald Moore and Jörg Demus are still critically acclaimed half a century after their release.
