About the Artist
As an international artist, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf has taken her genius to all of the world's famous opera houses and concert stages. Her operatic career began at the Berlin Opera, and soon thereafter she was much in demand at the Vienna Staatsoper, Covent Garden, and La Scala. She made her United States opera debut with the San Francisco Opera in Strauss' Der Rosenkavlier, which later was the vehicle for her triumphant debut at the Metropolitan Opera.
Miss Schwarzkopf's other love--Lieder--has brought her world fame unequaled by any other singer. Called "the greatest Lieder singer of our day" by English critic Andrew Porter, she gave her first American recital at New York's Town Hall, one of the most spectacular and widely discussed debuts ever made in this country. Since then she has made annual recital tours of the United States, singing repeatedly in all major concert scries. Tonight's recital marks her third Ann Arbor appearance.
John Wuslman, prominent coachaccompanist, is a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music and is currently on the faculty of the University of Illinois. He frequently col?laborates with such artists as Regine Crespin, Nicolai Gedda, Birgit Nilsson, Luciano Pavarotti, Roberta Peters, Cesare Siepi, and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, in recitals throughout the United States. Mr. Wustman has appeared in Ann Arbor as assisting pianist under Musical Society auspices on five previous occasions, the most recent in February of 1976 with Pavarotti.
