Bel Canto

The only problem with three day weekends is that I tend not to pay as close attention to the news. So I missed that one of the great Bel Canto singers of this era, Joan Sutherland, passed away this weekend at the age of 83. What a voice this woman had!

I hope that she and her close friend and colleague, Luciano Pavarotti, are holding a reunion concert in heaven.

Her recording of Delibes' "Flower Duet" with Marilyn Horne is, in my opinion, the definitive interpretation of the piece.

Rest in peace, La Stupenda. Thank you for your art.
