    Here's the Wagner that Terfel is best suited for imo. He sings this so beautifully

    Besides all my favorites already mentioned (Schorr, Hotter, London, Bjorling), here’s Ferdinand Frantz in the opening of Siegfried, Act 3: https://youtu.be/gdDoInLxQsQ

    The Act 3 Prelude and “Wacha Wala” is from 2:10:57—2:14:48.

    The greatest of all imo is the Statue scene from Don Giovanni

    Has anyone invoked the great Pavel Lisitsian yet? He is, IMO, among the finest lyric baritones of the past century:



    How about the largely forgotten Igor Gorin?:

    Thank you very much for thinking of me and my delight in Terfel's voice!

    I don't know why but I have never liked this song....even when I was a kid and had no idea but Wagner, Tannhauser, etc., etc.,. and that is totally okay with me--this is one of those mysteries that I have no inclination to solve.


    But I very gratefully appreciate your sensitivity.

    Speaking of Finley, here's a Credo:



    He did sing an amazing Iago in Munich (it was broadcast in December). He has so many colours in his voice, and he was really bone-chillingly evil.

    I wanted to raise your Finley Credo to a London Credo, but unfortunately this won't play here on TC

    Warm Greetings, Sieglinde. I have receive notices of live broadcast from Munich; the problem has been that I only receive them with 12 hours notice and--this is my fault, I erred on the time in my time zone.

    I looked before but I can't find any advance notice on their site when there will be a free broadcast. Do you know if there is such a notice on their website?

    Also, I see you are in Hungary. I understand that there was a magnificent bass-baritone tradition in your country. The first that immediately comes to mind is Lazslo Polgar (what a voice!!!! His Gremin's Aria is my favorite), would you mind sharing a bit of that history with me?

    Oh, Polgár was amazing! Such a beautiful, warm voice, and such an elegant man. Wish he lived longer



    One of my favourites when it comes to King Philip, Sarastro and Leporello.
