BTW, my very good friend and erstwhile Opera-L contributor,Wolf Janson of
Altenkirchen Germany ([log in to unmask]), is a HUGE fan of Grob-Prandl devotee.
He heard her in his youth in Germany, I believe LIVE and on the radio. Of
all his favorite singers, she is at the top. He is one who prefers a voice
with great dramatic quality and less so sheer vocal beauty. I think he would
say that she had that rare quality of BOTH. He sent me some snippets of her
singing, but I will have to seek out that Gotterdammerung which you mentioned.
Maybe I can coax him into writing something about her, but he has been very
busy of late and not participating much in forums.
