Previous post (here) about Sarah's final recital gave one cause to rejoice. The results came in and she appears to have finished top of that group! She with (formerly 'un' but increasingly now) characteristic modesty, naturally felt her friend Liana did as well if not better. The singers of course are all over the place and can't essentially be compared with each other, they are competing (if that is the right word) with themselves. So she has done well.
It was (to my doting mind) the Schumann that did it. I look forward to when she really has the emotional capacity to destroy people with the emotion of the Frauenliebe cycle...I will be the first to topple. But I am an easy target for my children!!
