Boston laments a Sutherland-Horne partner

The tenor Richard Conrad, who caught the ear of Joan Sutherland and Marilyn Horne and sang with them on Decca’s Age of Bel Canto, has died after a long illness, aged 84.

He spent the 1970s in Rome, returning home in 1980 to found the Boston Academy of Music.

A severe mugging in 1983 left him with trauma and vocal injury, after which he retrained as a baritone.

  • Immensely grateful for this post since I didn’t know about Richard Conrad. His artistry on The Age of Bel Canto is peerless. How fortunate are his students!
