    Default Nello Santi (September 22, 1931 – February 6, 2020)





    Nello Santi (September 22, 1931 – February 6, 2020) was an Italian conductor.


    The death is reported of Nello Santi, known to singers as ‘Papa Santi’, one of the most trustworthy conductors of Italian opera, with a career spanning more than 60 years.

    Santi was born in Adria (Veneto), Kingdom of Italy. He studied composition at the Liceo musicale of Padua. In 1951, he made his debut as a conductor in Padua conducting Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto at the Teatro Verdi. He was appointed music director of the Zurich Opera House from 1958 to 1969. He conducted at the Zurich Opera from 1958, Metropolitan Opera from 1962 when he made his debut with Verdi's Un ballo in maschera, Royal Opera House with La traviata and many more opera houses all over the world including Verona Arena.

    Santi retired to Riehen (canton Basel-Stadt), but still occasionally gave much-appreciated concerts in Basel and Zurich. He was often called "Papa Santi" by his fellow musicians to show their high respect for his work.

    Santi died in Zurich in February 2020 at the age of 88 while undergoing treatment for a blood infection.

    Franco Bordoni baritone.

    He sang across Europe and the US, often in first casts of Otello and Bohème, though never at the Met. Too old-school?

    Default Hamish Milne 27 April 1939 – 12 February 2020



    Hamish Milne (27 April 1939 – 12 February 2020) was an English pianist known for his advocacy of Nikolai Medtner.

    Milne studied at Bishop Wordsworth's School[1] in Salisbury and then at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he taught, and later in Italy under Guido Agosti.

    In the 1970s, Milne was the first pianist to offer a comprehensive survey of the piano music of Medtner since the composer made his own records.

    He died in February 2020 at the age of 80.[2]

    Default Elinor Ross (August 1, 1926[1] – March 6, 2020)





    Soprano - ELINOR ROSS - La forza del destino - "Pace, pace, mio Dio"







    The impressive soprano Elinor Ross died on March 6, aged 93.

    Her radiant career was cut off when, after singing Aida at the Met in 1979, she woke the next morning with facial paralysis, diagnosed as a form of Bell’s Palsy.

    She endured the loss with stoicism and warmth.


    ELINOR ROSS POSSESSED a voice of uncommon warmth and beauty. She had an instinctive command of phrasing, precise coloratura, a gleaming upper range and a keen rhythmic sense. Her greatest gift was her connection to the text; she channeled the dramatic truth of just about anything she sang. In the classic roles of the Italian repertoire, from Tosca to Turandot to Norma to Amelia in Un Ballo in Maschera, she achieved a combination of grandeur and delicacy that made her performances deeply satisfying.

    Ross was educated at Syracuse University, where she considered a career in medicine. After coming to New York, she studied with Stanley Sontag and coached with Leo Resnick, but her principal teacher was William Herman. She considered herself lucky to have come along in the days before the cost of singing lessons skyrocketed; she was able to meet with Herman several times a week. At the time, his studio included Roberta Peters, Nedda Casei and Elaine Malbin, all of whom became close friends.
