Notes & Reviews:
Sunday April 22nd 2012 marks the centenary of one of the finest and most beloved singers of the 20th century - the English contralto, Kathleen Ferrier. Her international career lasted just eight years, from 1946 until her untimely death in 1953 from cancer at the age of 41. Renowned Mahler conductor Bruno Walter once said: "The greatest thing in music in my life has been to have known Kathleen Ferrier and Gustav Mahler - in that order". Decca Classics, the label which record so much of her output in that short career, is proud to release a brand-new DVD documentary to commemorate her life. The film is a touching portrait of an extraordinary woman and features a rare audio interview recorded at the peak of her career and digitally remastered recordings of her finest performances, some never before released. It includes CD featuring previously unreleased Kathleen Ferrier recordings.Notes & Reviews:
