OK.....I give up!!!! Baum had a fabulous high C,and fine reliable technique, even though (because of Zinka) we had to hear that ugly voice so much....OK,Kurt, I am sure you two made up!!!!!

When Antonietta Stella stepped on the Met stage as Aida in 1956...I said,"Zinka WHO??" Imagine that!!!!> What a luscious,glamorous voice..Nar.15, 1929 is her birthday.....Imagine a season with Milanov,Stella,Tebaldi,De Los Angeles,Steber,etc...I am SPOILED!!!

I just had to put another Jack Swanson clip here. When I find a new young singer, I am so thrilled!!!! This is a great talent (with an interpolated B flat).

Honestly, this guy will go far, as soon as he turns 12.(kidding).

  I found ANOTHER TENOR.  Mr.Swanson will surely go far and I invite you to search Youtube for more of his superb singing.

  Luciano would be proud!!!!!

Nothing like a "subtle" tenor, born Mar.11, 1900. I have a feeling Riccardo Muti might not appreciate this!!!

How lucky we are to have one of the very few divas who recalls the kind of exciting,emotional artistry of artists like Zeani,Scotto,Callas,Olivero,Soviero,and my ex-girlfriend, Maria Jeritza!

Mme.Miricioiu could teach a good number of "generic" divas how to color the tone, make special use of the text ,exhibit inner emotions, and of course you know how I love low notes (they can be "mixed chest") and those authoritative slight glottal attacks.


 Here is the lovely lady, a Facebook STAR, just last year,in the Lady Macbeth aria.

Hi all,

  I have put videos up lately, because I had some back problems and could not sit too long at the computer to do the usual podcasts, but things are better, and I will resume as soon as possible.


Love  Charlie

The man was one of my all-time favorites. Listen to the "feeling" in the voice, and I am so sad that he left us so soon.  BUY THE BOOK!!!!!!

He left us so soon. Treigle was a veritable DYNAMO on stage, with a huge voice, and a stage personality that was RIVETING!!!!!  I  will never forget him!!!!

Mar.3, 1890 is the birthday of Ruby Helder, female TENOR!!!!

  This is so interesting and a rarity.
