    Me: Maybe I won’t care
    Nobody does!

    Cute indeed, rather like your headline!

    A real treat to hear these two marvels perform Dichterliebe. Lucky us.

  • Charles Clark-Maxwell says:

    There’s a similar pic of Gerald Moore singing and DF-D at the piano 😉

    How rude and ill mannered of Peter.

  • Mimi T says:

    They were both, as ever, simply superb. Brilliant acting, such sensitive accompanying and I doubt he’s been in better voice. Thank you so much.

  • Alex says:

    It was a beautiful recital this evening from all performers involved – ‘Dichterliebe’ was something rather special, though. Very deeply prepared… dare one hold out hope for a quarantine recording?
