Pianist Ivor Newton remembers Catalan mezzo soprano Conchita Supervia

Pianist Ivor Newton recalled this quote by the great mezzo soprano Conchita Supervia:

“Before the beginning of every program I ever did with Conchita, when we were trying to summon up the courage to face the music, Conchita would turn to me and say ‘Is every nerve in you body awake?’ and when I’d hopefully say ‘Yes’ we’d go onto the platform”.

From Conchita Supervia, Volume 1, Gemm CD 9975, program notes by Allan Evans, 1993.
