My first trip to New York City was in 1983 to see her in her Met debut role, Cassandre in Les Troyens, with Domingo and Troyanos, Levine conducting. Half a year or so later, when I bought one of them newfangled CD player contraptions, one of the discs I bought on the same day was her Philips recording of Vier Letzte Lieder and other Strauss songs with Masur conducting.
