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!

  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.
