Gundula Janowitz FINAL RECITAL first release

Exciting news! Later this year we will release the very final recital the soprano GUNDULA JANOWITZ gave before she retired from singing, which she made with pianist CHARLES SPENCER. It will be the recording’s first ever publication! She was one of the most renowned opera singers of the 20th century and for FHR to have her personal blessing to release this, is an unbelievable honour.

This remarkable 1999 concert, recorded at the Herodes Atticus Odeon in Athens, was a recital in memoriam of MARIA CALLAS, which was held on 16th September (day of Callas’ death). This was truly JANOWITZ’s swansong, her farewell to a miraculous performing career.

The release will also tie in with JANOWITZ’s 80th birthday this year, as well as the 40th anniversary of Maria Callas’ death. And what is on the menu?:
