If you asked me what my all-time favorite commercial recording by a diva is, I would tell you that the Lotte Lehmann Wunder der Heliane aria is to me SUPREME!!!!

The lady had this "veiled and haunting" tone that thrills me no end!!!!

Ferruccio Tagliavini had an incredibly beautiful

"Gigli-like" voice. Here is an aria from a rare

Refice work, "Chopin."  He did not even have

a recording of it, saw my catalogue, sent me a 

request and I sent it to him!!!

   8/14/1913.  More to come.

Imagine attending a performance with your four

favorite singers in their respective voice categories.

   The matinee 1956 for me was something never to forget.

Zinka,my all-time favorite singer, is absolutely at her

PRIME!!!!  The B flat pp on "Invan la pace" is

UNREAL and the last "Maledizione" is sensational.

I was standing all the way down across the orchestra

pit.  Yes, I live in the past!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I decided this morning to trace the stats 

for a given time period. In only three hours,

I observe,for example that there were 40

"hits" in this time period. I guess you have

not deserted me (like in that opera in

the desert where the soprano sings,

"Sola,perduta,e abbandonata."). I thank

you for years of support,despite some glitches (and

the flu). Please send me personally any comments

(Placido21@aol.com), as I cannot open 

the comments page here, or I will get

all sorts of ads. We are up to over a million and a

half "hits."  Keep listening!!!

   Lovingly   Charlie
