Bruno Walter


An unforgettable voice - and this release includes (rare) Frauenliebe recordings.

In the Brahms and Mahler everything benefits from the loveliness of voice and sincerity of approach. Finest of all, I think, are the Vier ernste Gesänge, the voice at its most sumptuous and utterly right for the songs, the style having noble breadth and authority as well as keeping compassionate personal contact.” - Gramophone

I adore the Frauenliebe and I can see that girl growing up from a child to a woman - and these light songs are all the highlights of joy and sorrow” - Kathleen Ferrier
