    . She did this at the Tucker Gala in 2014. Eaglen could sing Norma, but she couldn't have pulled this off with this much aplomb. Her D's were much smaller. Finally, with Radvanovsky, we have two dramatic coloraturas with big solid high D's!!!! Hurray!!! Meade has such a big rich voice, and...
  5. Opera
    I noticed while searching youtube that the modern performances always, or almost always, do not take the high note. What's up with that? Can't sing it or choose not too. I like it :)

    In the morning I had no thread ideas. Absolutely none. For a while I thought that, that was it. I have only been on the forum for one month and allready I have run out of ideas. Then I went for a walk and listened some Jonas Kaufmann. And then inspiration. In fact I got so many ideas, that I...

    Today we have lyrical and dramatic tenors. We have coloratura sopranos. Long time ago you were just a tenor or a soprano, but of course even then you sing the material that suited you or transposed it to suit. But I'm not interested in this thread to discuss should we do that or not. But should...

    A versatile tenor. He had a long career and even at the end he could still sing very well, all tough he sang then more in half voice to ease the strain. I read somewhere that in his farewell tour he could sing even 30-40 pieces per performance. And in an interview Pavarotti said that after a...

    Kraus for me is perfection. I think he has a very beautiful voice. His diction is great and he sings perfectly in Italian and in French. And of course in Spanish. He sings with great artistry, but still does those high notes that are exciting, but not too long. It's amazing how easy those are...

    A week ago I found from YouTube the following video: I would like to ask those who are accustomed to singing and hearing the tune above (and others), what do you think about Fleming's take? I read from the comments section that the last note is written, but not usually sang, since not...

    Looking to identify a piece of classical music that my father used to "sing" to me Hello, I hope someone can help. When I was a very little girl, my father wrote lyrics to accompany a piece of classical music which he used to sing to me. He's currently in hospital, in an induced coma and...
  12. Vocal Music
    Do you prefer listening to Lieder and art songs that you could sing? What I mean is, do you like to hear them sung in your own vocal range, so that you can sing along with them? I do. That is not to say that I don't enjoy artists that sing in a range not my own.
  13. Conductors & Conducting
    A few days ago I saw mention that the Thomas Quasthoff, the great baritone who retired in 2012, is scheduled to conduct the Bach St. Matthew Passion at this summer's Verbier Festival. This brought to mind other singers who have also taken up the baton (figuratively in some cases)... Placido...

    "I'm afraid the rot is setting in. Today the young singers do not develop a basic vocal technique. They don't know how to breathe and support and project the sound. They breathe from here" - she puts her hands on her breast - "and they don't support anything. They sing from here" - this time she...
  16. Opera
    in my opinion, it would have to be Marisa Galvany. her voice was basically like Maria Callas, but less elegant and with much more secure high notes. a dramatic mezzo lower/middle register and an effortless, spinning dramatic coloratura head voice all rolled into the same instrument. I can't...
  17. Non-Classical Music
    What songs do you like to sing in the bath or the shower? Personally I like to sing Hymns and traditional songs. Like... 'I Vow to Thee, My Country' (Holst arrangement of course). Reminds me of my time in England. What a wonderfully green country it is. The white cliffs of Dover looked a bit...
