  1. That was only 2002? She looks soooooooooo young there. I guess it’s those great Swedish genes. Have you checked out her Wesendonck Lieder on medici.tv yet?

    1. I did! Great artistry, but I don’t quite recognize her voice anymore so avoid listening to her present-day performances. It’s one downside of knowing all her recordings inside and out, I suppose… When the voice changes, you notice very much.

      1. No, I enjoyed the tempo which I found indulgent rather than ponderous and the choreography did not jar at all.
