Letters and Diaries of Kathleen Ferrier
Fifty years ago, Kathleen Ferrier, the greatest lyric contralto Britain has ever produced, lost her courageous battle with breast cancer. Until now she has just been a voice, but through the pages of these letters and diaries we get to the person.
Her letters not only illuminate the musical life of Britain, Europe and America but also the detailed organisation involved in programming, touring and performing in the very different arenas of concerts, recitals, opera, broadcasting and recording.
