I had only heard Caruso do this aria

and suddenly here is my beloved

favorite singer, Piotr Beczala, doing

it. This guy thrills me more than

did his first Lohengrin,I did give

him the CD set of Gedda's only one.

Very few singers today remind me of

my "Golden Age" from my youth.

I was there when Licia (at 57) kissed the

Met stage after her aria. She was born 7/22/09.

Died at 105. I walked with tiny Licia at a

Soviero affair..Like walking with history.

Along with the Rosenkavalier trio,

this for me is the most SUBLIME

opera scene...just the way Jones

  This wonderful man died onstage 

at only 51.(I saw Warren die on stage

at 49). I can see,from 1957, how Martha

Moedl sank into his arms in Walkure.

Wonderful Wozzeck(excellent English.)

Warem voice and great artist.
