One thought on “Nessum Dorma

  1. Definitely in the top 10 tenors of the 20th Century, and in some instances in the top five. This may be one of those instances. ;-) Hard to tell with the distortions of the medium. Powerful, just not all that lyrical–something I think is often lacking in performances of Nessun Dorma (though not in performances by Placido Domingo or Jussi Bj√∂rling–part of that little extra they bring to it). Beautiful voice and expressively sung. My library’s not replete with Richard Tucker performances (this is one of the gaps), but this would be worth looking up for listening to a better recording. Thanks.
