Notes & Reviews:

Canadian contralto Maureen Forrester is a legend of the opera world. A favorite of Bruno Walter, she became one of the foremost interpreters of the Mahlerian style, and the heir apparent to Kathleen Ferrier. This tribute from Praga features performances of Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn and Rückert-Lieder.
