The world-famous soprano made her debut on the stage of the Hungarian State Opera House in 1971. During her stage career, which spanned 24 years, she sang nearly 50 leading roles. We have compiled the programme of her jubilee CD from her favourite Lieder and opera roles: alongside Richard Strauss’s Vier letzte Lieder, which huge emotional depths, and Wagner’s Wesedonck-Lieder, the best-known arias from operas by Boito (Mefistofele), Catalani (La Wally), Cilea (Adriana Lecouvreur), Gounod (Faust), Mascagni (Cavalleria Rusticana), Verdi (Un ballo in maschera, Otello, La forza del destino) and Wagner (Tannhäuser) can be heard. Three of Mozart’s concert arias also feature in the two-CD selection.
