Nessum Dorma

This one is for my mother.  She still thinks Mario Lanza was one of the best tenors, ever.  I don’t.  I think he was a nut-case.  Of course the way things were at the Met in those days, he never did get a break.  Paul Potts makes mince-meat out of him.

    The music itself does a lot to redeem his execreble performance. With proper vocal coaching he did sound pretty good from time to time, but his performance here is evidence that he needed lots more than he got.

    Check your email for The Definitive performance of this piece. No poaching now; I have it scheduled for posting on Friday. :-)… along with a special treat for you (also noted in the email).
