Alice Coote...

Just listened to the Edinburgh concert of this terrific young mezzo., who has a really special talent for dramatic sincerity in addition to her luscious voice. I generally cannot sit through Schumann's vomitrocious Franenliebe und-leben my distaste having been deep-dyed by having had to attempt singing some of these nauseous ditties myself, in a long-ago class. Barf! Coote actually managed to make the cycle if not palatable, at least tolerable, and her rendition of the same composer's weird and rather pervy Die Lowenbraut had me in big fliddy floods of tears.
She sang some Mahler, too, and was just ace. To sing really superbly must be the greatest gift there is. Sigh...
