Compilation: Giuseppe Taddei: In Memoriam - Arias from Figaro, L'Elisir, Bohème, Macbeth, Ernani & Tosca


Listen to a Sample:


It is always sad when a great singer leaves us no matter how long and full their life was.  Fortunately the opera world was blessed to have the presence of Giuseppe Taddei for a remarkable singer for 95 years.  More remarkable however was the quality of work that he sustained over his four decade long career.  He was a true Verdi baritone in every sense of the word.  Not only did his voice combine the heft, beauty (and when the drama called for it, nastiness) but he was also a superb singing actor.  This compilation features arias and excerpts from Le Nozze di Figaro, L'Elisir d'amore, La Bohème, Macbeth, Ernani, and Tosca
