Notes & Reviews:

This is a rare live recording of Dame Margaret Price performing her debut at Wigmore Hall in 1987, accompanied by the late Geoffrey Parsons. This program of songs by Schubert, Mahler and Richard Strauss celebrated 25 years on stage for Price and was described by the Guardian of London's critics as "one of the most thrilling performances I have ever seen." "Margaret Price lived much of her life in Munich, and this Lieder recital shows her deep sympathy with German music, literature, and language. It also reveals that unique soprano: warm and steady with the ballast of a mezzo at its core., and sky-blue radiant at the top of the register. The fusion of dark and light, melancholy and joy, makes her Mahler particularly special...It is Price's sheer generosity of spirit, mind and voice which make these five-star performances." -BBC Music Magazine
