Katharina Konradi sings Debussy's Ariettes oubliées

New Generation Artists: Katharina Konradi sings Debussy.
The Kyrgyzstan-born soprano sings Debussy's exquisite settings of six sensual texts by Paul Verlaine. These 'forgotten songs,' were dedicated to Mary Garden, the first Melisande, and in them Debussy opens the door to his operatic masterpiece. Katharina Konradi recorded them recently at the BBC's studios.
