Death of a French soprano, 91

The German-born soprano Édith Selig-Papée has died in Paris, where she taught for 30 years at the École Normale de Musique.

She appeared on a recording of Mahler’s 2nd symphony in 1958, long before it was profitable to do so, but she was best known for singing Bach and Gluck.
