New CD Review: Astrid Varnay as Salome

Legendary soprano Astrid Varnay is heard to great effect in this recording of Richard Strauss' Salome. Click on the image to read my review.

Varnay is rapidly becoming one of my most favourite sopranos.  The more I hear of her work, the more I love her musical intelligence and the almost indestructable quality of her voice.

I've ordered her autobiography, 55 Years in Five Acts and eagerly await its arrival.
