Description
Part of this great singer's farewell tour in 1994, these recitals include Franz Schubert's Winterreise cycle; songs by Hugo Wolf, Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, and Leonard Bernstein; and a bonus Master Class.

"Her intelligence, her wisdom in the way she uses her voice, has always been evident—and here is the result: truly great, insightful, and beautiful singing in her mid-sixties…. You won't be able to breathe during Mahler's 'Ich bin der Welt,' and you'll feel a chill when Ludwig sings what she describes as her favorite song of all, Anakreon's Tomb of Wolf…. A final bonus on each disc is a short snippet from Ludwig on stage in her prime—a 1970 Così production and a 1982 Falstaff (with Taddei)."—Fanfare
