My very best and sympathies. I too will treasure the amazing voice, and your wonderful mother. Of course I was able to meet many times after a concert and it didn't take long your wonderful father knew me by name of many wonderful performances at least I thought. I too will remember my first rehearsal of the Verdi Requiem @ at the end of the first NSO season and the Benjamin Britten War Requiem as well. I will always treasure. I still have the program of the War Requiem. Regards.
With love. Paul.
May the family forever be blessed by God in Heaven,for He has said,"He has set a day in which he purposes to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed,and he has furnished a guarantee to all men in that he has resurrected him from the dead."---acts 17:31.......~d~
????e?a ? µ??µ? a?t?? ? µ??µ?. May her memory be eternal. One of the most amazing voices and personalities of the 20th century - spent so many years seeking her recordings (which were very hard to find in the US) and she will always remain one of my favorite sopranos. My best friends and I would eagerly play the heavily damaged LPs that made it to the US, having survived from before they were banished from the USSR - it was like the quest for gold for many years. Like another guest, my first recording was the Requiem - and the "Libera me" was devastatingly beautiful - the voice of an angel. I was too young to have seen her live but just hearing the recordings was and still remains exhilarating. May the blessings of Christ the Saviour through the intercessions of our most pure, blessed, and glorious Lady, Maria, the Mother of God be with her family in this time of sorrow.
My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Galina Vishnevskaya. May the God of Peace be with you. Rm. 15:33
To the the family of Galina Vishnevskaya - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that she will be missed by many.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
May you find comfort in the Hearer of prayer at this time. Psalm 65:2
While still a young man, I owned a wonderful recording of Vishnevskaya singing the soprano part in the Verdi Requiem. I loved that recording and over the years it became a beautiful addition to the soundtrack of my life. I will miss her.
