He’s 90, she’s 75. Unique private recital, with Domingo at the piano

It gives us huge pleasure to celebrate the 90th birthday next Sunday of Carlo Bergonzi, still singing strong.

And the 75th today of Elena Obraztsova.

  • Wonderful performances from Obratsova and Bergonzi.

    Glad to hear news that Decca have created a 17CD bargain priced set to mark Carlo Bergonzi’s 90th birthday. It contains complete operas, Aida,Un Ballo in Maschera, La Traviata, Don Carlo, Rigoletto,IL Trovatore, and four CDs of Verdi and other Italian arias.

  • I remember a wonderful free open-air concert outside Milan Cathedral in 1984 that Bergonzi gave with piano. Beautifully controlled singing, and my first hearing of ‘Una furtiva lagrima’. These things stick with you…
