Galina Vishnevskaya

the great Russian soprano, died today aged 86.  Did anybody, ever, commit so incandescent a final scene of Eugene Onegin to disk as Galina, round about 1960, singing with George Ots as Onegin … that sweet confession of love on the long drawn-out high A, then she goes ballistic?  (LP# ASD 2451, made in the USSR.  Fortunately I still have it.)
