Riccardo Stracciari 1917-1925
The excerpts on this disc are representative of a number of Stracciari's major roles. The voice was well captured by Columbia and the listener will be particularly struck by the virility and richness of sound in the recordings which were made between 1917 and 1925 when Stracciari was at the peak of his powers.
|Review||"overs of opera and bel canto should have this CD. Stracciari was one of the great voices of the 20th century and, amongst baritones, he was at the pinnacle." - George A. Butler|
