Tod ist Tove!

Ann Murray singing the song of the wood-dove from Schönberg's Gurrelieder, the tragedy at the heart of that work.

Ann Murray was the wife of Philip Langridge who died on Friday. There's some examples of his work on also on youtube - but I wanted to mourn. Stay for the denouement! - alas the video cuts off the closing orchestral bars. I'll be listening to Langridge in Peter Grimes later..
PS (Monday) the Guardian obituary of Langridge is now available.
