Quote from: PerfectWagnerite on April 26, 2007, 06:22:07 AMYes, she sings quite a bit. I would say her part is as big as Fricka in Das Rheingold.
Quote from: knight on April 26, 2007, 11:04:09 AMOK, she gets a free pass.Translondon, I just am not convinced. Norma ought just to have kept stumm....difficult in opera, but Mum ought to have been the word.Mike
Quote from: knight on April 24, 2007, 07:20:15 AMLarry, Yet another new one on me, care to advocate it.Azucena's music is esp. dramatic in that Act 4 scene 2, Ai nostri monti that you mention Hector. When I run it through my head I can only hear Brigitte Fassbaender, who made the words so vivid. I felt that she bested even the best native Italian singers.Mike
Quote from: knight on April 27, 2007, 04:53:32 AMHector, I have that Karajan Barbieri set, she is another really good singer. Italy used to have an endless supply of them. Possibly it still does, but they are not given the profile by the recording companies.Mike
