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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great cast!! (well,almost!)  

Milanov,Baebieri,Siepi,Warren. They had

to Baum, but that's life!!!!! DelMonaco

did other shows, but this is what did

occur at times.

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

I totally disagree with Placido singing baritone.

He has an amazing amount of voice at

75, and he was also born on a famous

day,Jan.21 (like me, but I sang the right stuff.)

Some of you will disagree,but I feel

he does not do proper justice to

the Verdi line. BUT here he shows what

a great singer he has been.

So there we were in the first row at Carnegie

and just before Tebaldi launched into this

aria, she looked down and winked at us! We

were sure she sang just for US!!!!!

Absolutely RIVETED by the Amfortas of

Ryan McKinny. I have seen the best, as 

you well know:London,Uhde,Schoeffler,etc.

This artist is a true STAR!!!

I do not believe that there has ever

been any soprano with the combination

of gorgeous voice quality and

Wagnerian volume.. When she sang "Pace"

at the Met in a concert with Bastianini

and Del Monaco, I thought the roof

would come down on the "Maledizione." I

so miss our yearly birthday (Feb.1) phone 

calls. NO artist was as sweet and dear

to us in our youth..and funny!
