Re: Janine Micheau
Thank you; your answer is indeed perhaps what I should have guessed for myself, as I have often reacted in the same way to Betty Blackhead's "archness" or "mannered, self-conscious" delivery yet sometimes I still love what she does. I guess I don't mind a wallow in Fleming's lush vocalism and there it is. I don't much like the micro-managed artificiality of either of Schwarzkopf's 4 Last Songs but I do enjoy both of Fleming's, even if Janowitz remains my top choice.
It really was just a question, not a gauntlet...
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
