More sad news: Italian maestro dies

My singer friends inform me that Ubaldo Gardini, one of the great voice and Italian language coaches of the past half century, died yesterday in hospital in Ferrara.

Here’s a tribute by Sir Colin Davis, who called him ‘maestro’. Mark Elder, in an interview, once named Gardini as the man from whom he had learned most.
