    Very sorry to hear that... She is all over this Webern Complete Works that I have been listening to so much in these past weeks. She sings many of the lieder and has a beautiful voice.

    Rest in peace. I will use this as motivation to further explore her recordings.

    Fine singer. The first recording I bought which featured her was Solti's Mahler 8 from 1972, which had a stellar cast.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Sorry to hear this. Solti's Mahler was also my introduction to this fine singer.

    My intro was via the first Colin Davis recording of Messiah.
