VERY few opera singers can sing popular music. Farrell did it pretty well and many male singers do it well, but the DIVAS have trouble. I guess the breaks in the voice make it more difficult...but Dorothy Kirsten mastered the crossover, compared to the ludicrous Fleming or L.Price.

Corelli had more vibrato young (DelMonaco called him a "goat) but these commercial discs still tel us of the man's greatness.

I saw him 40 times.Yes,he could be a pain...but generally speaking,he raised the roof!!!!!!!!!!

I have friends who knew him well,and they tell me how sweet he was and so concerned about his artistry.

  She did lots of films and was popular. 

HOWEVER, the end of the Bolero

makes me HYSTERICAL! She and

Erna Sack are "fun" in a certain way.

  Howyalike all my new posts???????????

It was so nice when Piotr Beczala

introduced me to the son of

another Polish tenor,Jan Kiepura.

His beloved mother, Martha Eggerth

was alive at the time, and he called

her and said, "Hi,ma!!

I felt as if I was in some way "part of history."

    Piotr is my favorite singer of today,

by the way.

When she showed up, Caballe

was one of the greatest singers

of the century!

 Her birthplace was Barcelona, as we 

at this tragic time send our

deepest feelings for their people.

HUGEST voice from a baritone. Great man...In

Ernani, the audience sometimes started to yell at the G 

before the A flat, so stupendous the sound!
