    Thomas quasthoff ends singing career

    Those of us who love great singing and particularly those who like myself love the art of the Lied will be saddened by the report that the great German Bass-Baritone Thomas Quasthoff has announced that effective immediately he is suspending his singing career due to illness. Mr. Quasthoff will continue to teach and perform other duties. Although his disability prevented him from making too many performances in Opera he enjoyed a busy concert and recording career.

    A Press Release follows

    I am sure all members wish him good health and a happy life.

    This is very sad news indeed - Quasthoff is a major exponent of "lieder". He carries a great tradition that Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau once carried.

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
