Good for Leyla Gencer's birthday to hear the kind of thrilling singing I miss. They no longer at the Met allow the "avraaaaaaai" to be held, and Gildas are OK...but no one attacks the E flat like Callas,Peters,Hurley,and Leyla!!!!!!

I adored this great lady!!! Tremendous variety of roles and amazing feeling for the line and the text.

We gave her a party in 1972 and she signed my "Gencer Pirated Recording Card."

 Callas may have been "deeper," but Gencer for me was able to last very long, despite a few "gulps."

  Bless her memory!!!!!
