Puccini: La boheme - Kabaivanksa, Ferrandi, Montoya, Matiello, Algorta; Martini. Buenos Aires, 1963


Listen to a Sample:


A new talent is always a very exciting thing.  Especially when they are able to blossom into a great artist.  Raina Kabaivanska had just been singing professionally for about six years and was still in her twenties when she sang this performance of La Bohème.  Her voice radiates a youthful optimism throughout the opera.   Both her control over her technique and her style are remarkable.   The sadness in her voice during "Donde lieta uscì" is palpable.  I am very happy to report that the sound is excellent.  A rarity for a document of an artist just getting her feet wet.
