Apparently it depended which of his lists you were on at a particular point in time.

He wasn’t impressed at all with Nilsson when he first heard her, calling her a “loud soubrette” because of the leanness of her sound. Years later he said he’d stop conducting when she stopped singing.

He was a Rysanek champion, then moved her to the s*** list when she canceled his DGG Elektra and Rosenkavalier recordings in 1959 and he had to use Marianne Schech. It took a few years to reconcile.
