Re: Pre-50's versus post-50's singing

I cannot stand for microphones, there is always a noticeable difference in sound when I hear voice through a microphone, I came to hear the raw sound of the human voice, without any kind of resonating filter. I would prefer companies to use a smaller theater if a singer is unable to project in a lar...

Re: Best aria rendition in non-original language?

I think Pourquoi me reveiller is just as powerful in italian as it is in french as well as many grand opera arias like the Paradis in L'Africaine and the Bianca al par in Huguenots.

Re: The best vocal match up in duets
