I change my mind a lot

I saw on ARTS a clip of Lucia Popp singing something from Mahler's Knaben Wunderhorn ("Wo die schoenen Trumpeten blasen") with Leonard Bernstein conducting that I thought was marvelous. Her German was a little Slavic, with a bit of a guttural thing going on. But nevertheless gorgeous. Maybe she just hasn't sung the right thing for me.
