Kathleen Ferrier was the most significant British singer to emerge following the end of the Second World War. Although her professional singing career spanned only a single decade (1942-1953) she achieved international recognition in a remarkably short time. The works presented here capture a voice which the conductor Leopold Stokowski described as “ full and beautiful, the intonation always perfect, the phrasing so elastic...”. Ferrier’s interpretations were also celebrated for their poignancy, notably in her reading of Brahms’s Vier ernste Gesänge, recorded just three years before the singer’s untimely death.
