Synopsis: This edition of 'Ferrier-A Career Recorded' has been written to celebrate the 50th Kathleen Ferrier Singing Awards which took place at the Wigmore Hall, London in April 2005, one of the country's most prestigious competitions for young singers.
This new version (the previous edition was published in 1992 and has been long out of print) deals in depth with every facet of Kathleen Ferrier's career as a recording artist.
She left a great number of recordings which have been popular for years, from 'Blow the wind southerly' to 'What is Life', but recently yet more recordings, taken from radio broadcasts, have been discovered and are to be issued on CD in the autumn of 2005. The book gives details of all these works.
Kathleen Ferrier's singing is still greatly loved by musicians and enthusiasts the world over and this book is the indispensible companion to every collection of her records. It is extensively illustrated and contains original contributions from, among others, Lady Barbirolli, Michael Berkeley, the Earl of Harewood, Bryan Crimp and Michael Letchford, all of whom either knew Ferrier herself or have a direct link with some of her incomparable recordings.
It relates how 'lost' recordings have been re-discovered and issued on CD, how Decca turned a mono Ferrier recording into a stereo one, where (and why) Ferrier can be heard singing lustily at a boisterous party to her own piano accompaniment and how her earliest surviving radio broadcast (from 1945) was an early attempt at Anglo-Soviet entente - and much else besides.
This is a tribute, too, to a singer who, in a recording career of just eight and a half years, left a legacy that is daily being re-discovered by music lovers worldwide.
Product Description: A celebration of the recording career of Kathleen Ferrier, brimming with anecdotes of intrigue and mystery! Paul Campion presents a meticulously researched biography of Ferrier, one of the original stars of both Columbia and Decca. Her performances of Mahler, Bach, Monteverdi, Britten and countless other greats have inspired generations. Campion's remarkable account documents every known recording, placing the singer's career in the context of a tumultuous private life characterised by disappearing discs, frosty relationships and other fascinating episodes!
