Hubert Giesen was a German pianist and composer, highly regarded as an accompanist for Lieder recitals. One of his best known and closest (though tragically brief) associations was with the great German tenor Fritz Wunderlich, who by virtue of his insight into interpretation of art song called Giesen his main teacher. Giesen is primarily known through his recordings with Wunderlich.
