Kathleen Ferrier (contralto)

About

Kathleen Ferrier was born on 22 April 1912 and died at the age of forty-one on 8 October 1953.

She was an artist held in awe and affection by numerous colleagues and countless fans worldwide and her reputation is undiminished to this day. A true contralto, whose repertory encompassed English song as well as German Lieder, her recording of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with the Vienna Philharmonic under Bruno Walter [and tenor Julius Patzak] is one of the most celebrated classical recordings of all time and has been a staple of the Decca catalogue since it was first released in 1952.

The majority of Ferrier’s studio recordings were made for Decca and many from broadcast sources have also been published by Decca. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Kathleen Ferrier’s birth, the Decca legacy is brought together in a comprehensive 14-CD set with a bonus DVD.

All the recordings have been remastered for this anniversary edition and will further demonstrate the unique qualities of this much-loved artist.
