You learn new things every day.  I thought (and think) that I
knew a great deal about her career and her repertoire and now
this piece of news.  Is this the only example of her singing
lieder that anyone knows about?  I was certainly surprised!
I can only imagine what it sounded like. Simplicity itself :-)
While I'm on the subject are there any other examples except
for the "Proch" variations of non operatic stuff.  Leave
"Ah Perfido" out of it, it's more operatic than a lot that
is.  Thanks for any information on this new facet of her
