Applause to Magdalena Kozená and her performance at the Aldeburgh Festival on June 10

Sir Simon Rattle came out on stage to announce to the audience at the 64th Aldeburgh Festivalhis wife, mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozená will ill. She still intended to sing, but should her voice give out an alternate was driving down from North England, over 250 miles away --just in case.

Kozená was able to finish Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde. While there was an evident struggle in her voice, but the performance was still amazing, creating a night the people of Birmingham will not soon forget.
