Kathleen Ferrier was one of the greatest British singers of the 20th century. For ten years she enjoyed an unparallelled career, admired equally for the generous warmth and sincerity of her interpretations as for her uniquely splendid contralto voice. This reissue features twelve arias and songs that Ferrier recorded for Decca between 1946 and 1950. In addition there are eight treasurable items from a 1949 Norwegian Radio recital in Oslo, which include her only published recordings of Hugo Wolf.

Kathleen Ferrier (contralto)

“'Where e’er you walk' is the only recorded example of her singing this quintessential tenor aria. There is a definably oratorio austerity to her phrasing that announces real gravity...[There is] a rather delicious air of felicitous wit in Like as the love-lorn turtle” MusicWeb International, 12th November 2013

Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 'Choral'


Isobel Baillie (soprano), Kathleen Ferrier (contralto), Heddle Nash (tenor) & William Parsons (baritone)

London Philharmonic Orchestra & Choir, Bruno Walter

This is a recording of a public performance in the Albert Hall in 1947 and the line-up of artists is certainly remarkable; Isobel Baillie, Kathleen Ferrier, Heddle Nash and William Parsons, not to mention Bruno Walter. Here Walter is in his prime and the first movement has a fiery, tough tension. He insistently presses forward in a reading of thrilling drama and power.
