About

Dagmar Pecková is a world-renowned singer whose professional career could perhaps be best summed up by the sheer number of leading orchestras (Wiener Philharmoniker, Tonhalle Zurich, LPO, LSO, BBC Symphony, NHK Symphony, Cleveland and Pittsburgh SO, etc) and conductors (Belohlavek, Herreweghe, Jarvi, Mackerras, Sawallisch, etc) she has worked with, or by listing her appearances at the most prestigious festivals, concert halls and opera houses.

A mezzo-soprano possessing a distinct voice and great charisma, Dagmar Pecková is a bold personality who, owing to her openness, among other things, has also succeeded in addressing 'non-classical' audiences, even though she herself remains faithful to classical music.

Peckova has confessed: "Mahler and Wagner - two composers who have influenced my entire career. They were discovered for me by Jiri Belohlavek. I can return to these songs - dreams at any time, and they will never cease to surprise me with their unutterable perfection."

Supraphon is now returning to these recordings, which represented a significant milestone in Dagmar Peckovafs artistic career and introduced her to the world as a superlative performer of Mahler's music.
