faut de l'amour"
Buchet / Chastel
Olivier Bellamy, a French
journalist with a daily programme on Radio Classique, who has
written books about Martha Argerich and Teresa Berganza, has written
a book with me/about me: Il nous faut de líamour, published by
Buchet Chastel. It is in French!
It seems very self-indulgent
to have written a book about my career and life- it wasnít my idea!
But after spending hours looking back and remembering people and
events, I feel very fortunate and very privileged. Iíve worked with
some wonderful people and made some very good friends. Several
people should have received credits in the book, which suddenly came
out very quickly after being in the pipeline for a couple of years.
Without all the work done by Marina Lewandowski on this website, it
would have been impossible to publish a discography. And special
thanks are due to my friend Sue Jones and her husband Paul, for
putting all my performances on to a database from which we could
extract a list of operas, colleagues and conductors. My agent,
Robert Rattray, who looked after me all my performing life until he
vanished across the Pond, should have a chapter to himself for being
a very caring, shrewd and wise Manager, steering me through some
choppy waters. And my family has been endlessly patient and
supportive. I apologise if this sounds as though Iíve won an Oscar;
I couldnít really be more surprised if I had! Felicity
