  • I only saw her in the 1972 Gunther Rennert Salzburg Cosi with Karl Bohm conducting. She was in the stellar company of Janowitz, Grist, Fischer-Dieskau, Schreier and Prey. What a cast!

  • She also honcho’d the “Complete Works for Voice and Piano” for the Strauss @ 150 anniversary. 13 singers, 5 pianists, 9 CDs. She is the narrator on “Enoch Arden.” Two Pianists Records is the label. And it is just awesome!
