Compilation: Richard Cassilly - Excerpts from Beatrice di Tenda, Bolena, Otello, Tosca, Tannhäuser, Walküre, Tristan, Elektra, Jenufa, Troilus & Grimes
Listen to a Sample:
- Richard Cassilly had a long and varied career, ultimately leaving his mark in the Wagnerian repertoire. Unfortunately, he didn't reach the height of his prominence until later in life when Wagner was beginning to take its toll on his voice. It is my hope that this compilation will show what an exquisitely refined singer he was, particularly in his younger years. You might be surprised to hear how adept he was in bel canto...
- This compilation features arias and excerpts from Beatrice di Tenda, Anna Bolena, Otello, Tosca, Tannhäuser, Walküre, Tristan, Elektra, Jenufa, Il Prigioniero, Troilus as well as extended scenes from Peter Grimes.
