Lotte Lehmann for me is the CARUSO 

of divas 2/27/88.   Sensational!

Rise sat at her desk and spoke

of Lehmann's Eva as if in

a trance....and ended up

doing Octavian with her!!!!!!!!!

  This rendition thrills me

  beyond belief. Imagine if

 he had lived 15 more years

(he died at 48), what treasures

(live also) we would have.

When my ma met her, I could not speak Italian and she had not much English...so I spoke Spanish..That is why she called me "Carlos" and every time we met, she asked for my madreā€¦..

Listen to the last note.It broke the chandeliers at the Met!!!!!    No one had the  Wagnerian volume and beauty of tone.

I called her every birthday  2/1/22    and "call her" forever.
