Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Brahms reading [in Volume 5 of the Kathleen Ferrier Edtion], above all, suggests all Ferrier's attributes—the total conviction that she projected when singing in her own language, the generosity of tone and phrase, the inner passion.

Listening to many of these discs, I found again and again it was this fervour of style, whether 'speaking' of spiritual or physical passion, that so characterized Ferrier's singing. It's there...in Schubert's Du liebst mich nicht in the Edinburgh recital with Bruno Walter (Disc 9), even more so in the tremendous outpouring in Von ewiger Liebe in the same recital... For those who want to make a choice or
Read more are for some reason coming new to Ferrier, I would recommend the fifth disc with the unforgettable Chausson and Brahms...and the ninth disc, the Edinburgh recital with Walter, which has much the more telling of her two accounts of Frauenliebe und -leben.

-- Gramophone [6/1992]
