fwiw, she was interviewed today on the Diane Rehm show. Very compelling hour of radio, even for folks not normally drawn to classical music.

PH


I'm glad you mentioned this. One of the local classical hosts was on about her this summer. Played some recordings and interview excerpts. I intended to chase something down and then forgot.

FD must have recorded this at least 6 times!! I have not heard the one he did with Murray Perahia. Have you? I listed to the Matthias Goerne one last night and don't like it very much. I then listened to the old (1963??) recording with Peter Pears. Fantastic, except for the tape hiss. I think I prefer a tenor singing this, rather than a baritone.

A new recording with tenor James Gilchrist and Anna Tilbrook (Orchid label) is on my wish list.

No, I haven't. The one I have is with Gerald Moore.
