Daniela Dessė RIP

Very probably Michael Cookson's appreciative review of the video performance of La Bohčme, in which Daniela Dessė sings Mimė, was written before 20 August. Alas, this review stands as a fine reminder that on that date Italy (and not only Italy) lost one of the finest lyric sopranos of recent decades, at the age of only 59, following a brief but painful illness.
