Fred: I have a beautiful recording of Ferrucio Tagliavini and his wife Pia Tassinari in "L'Amico Fritz" and also in "Boheme"...

Ah. 13+1 = 14. Should have used my calculator! I must have been doing some "Common Core" arithmatic.

By the way, Ferruccio Tagliavini also just turned 101. He was born August 14, 1913, and died January 28, 1995 - age 81. He was only 2 weeks older than Tucker, but he lived 20 years longer than Tucker. Ciao.

Well said, Ed! I agree with your comments about Richard Tucker. I called the Tucker Foundation today and gave them a few kudos for the good work they do.

Peace,
John

Wow! He'd be 102 now. And, with his technique, probably would still be singing. Merrill tells an amusing story about him. Tucker was getting a little thick in the waist and started taking Metrecal to lose some weight. Weeks went by and no weight loss. Merrill finally says to him, "I thought you were on a diet with that Metrecal stuff." Tucker: "I am, but it's putting ON weight". Merrill: "How often do you take it?" Tucker: "After every meal." !!!

Would any of you know of music schools in NYC (or anywhere else) where the average Joe (like me) can study music? After I finish grad school, I'll still have unused GI Bill benefits and would like to study music and voice. Thoughts?

Thanks,
John

Piotr Bezcala was also named singer of the year by the same group that honored Anna Netrebko.

I heard many years ago that one was being considered but apparently nothing has happened. She did have quite a nice write-up in the old "Opera Quarterly" magazine, Spring 1990 issue. Her bio would be an interesting and fun read.

Zinka Milanov was one of my favorite sopranos, unfortunately there are no extensive bios of her? I wonder why?

I made a new fan for Mario over the passed few weeks by giving her a few samples of his recordings. I made a few cds I thought she'd enjoy, some from Coke shows and just recently a copy of Hollywood Bowl 1947 and Live From London. She has expressed a strong interest in Mario and I told her many things about him which I knew. I am waiting for her responses.
