      Thanks for posting this!

      I kick myself for not having gone to these performances when I had a chance, and also her final Gurrelieder performances with BSO.

      But I was fortunate to have heard her many times, and to have been a chorister in many of her performances at Emmanuel Music and elsewhere.

      RIP, Lorraine.

    I am *not* happy here, Valter. I vant to be back in Silesia. Here they tolerate poor people and cripples in the castle. Not like the old days! And vat is the obsession with long hair, if it is not blonde??? Other hair has practical applications. One doesn’ t lose rings-- one melts them down. And just how was la Joachim (given her ancestry) allowed to escape my comrades?
