Notes and Editorial Reviews

For many vocal connoisseurs, Dame Elisabeth Schwarzkopf (1915-2006) represents the pinnacle of imagination, intelligence, and musicianship. This rare 1963 Radio-Canada telecast of an all-Viennese concert she performed with her colleague and friend Willi Boskovsky (1909-1991) provides visible and audible proof of that claim. Booklet includes a reminiscence of Dame Elisabeth by Charles Scribner III.

Subtitles in English, French, German, and Italian. B&W, 49 min.
