soprano Rosanna Carteri - R.I.P.
« on: October 27, 2020, 12:36:54 PM »
(14 December 1930 – 25 October 2020) - aged 89

The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal

Not familiar with her recordings/performances.  Which of hers are your favorites?

She sings the soprano part in the first recording of Poulenc's Gloria .

Will dig through my LPs a bit later (working on morning tea at the moment); that Poulenc cover looks awfully familiar.   :-\

Take your time.
When I read her obituary, I remembered her name and that Lp was probably one of the first I ever bought- at least 45 odd years ago.
These two works, together with the sonata for two pianos, the Concert Champêtre and the Suite Française , were my introduction to Poulenc's world.

Aha!  I was wrong about the LP (unless I put it in my organ section, but I doubt that), BUT I do have a recording with her on CD.  This one: 

 ;D

p.s.  I'm pretty certain that this was also my first intro to Poulenc, but on cassette.

Carteri was a faboulous singer, really skilled and with great vocal abilities; also she was so beutiful woman and good actress (you can watch her great Desdemona with del Monaco and a superb Capecchi as Jago in 1958 Rai broadcasted on YouTube available). Her Traviata with Monteux and Valletti is magnificent! Morever she was a wonderful soprano lirico leggero with possibility of coloratura and excellent high notes, not just notes but with carisma! The Poulenc recording is also a great proof of her singing so nice and tehnically magnificent. Splendid Serpina in Pergolesi Serva padrona and wonderful Liu’ in Turandot. She stopped very early to dedicate herself to her 2 children, no other reasons. Besides Callas and Tebaldi there were a lot of fantastic sopranos like her or Cerquetti or Tucci or others like Moffo that today would have been stars absolutely for their vocal qualities.
