Voix des Arts

One of the greatest misfortunes in opera today is that the legacies of so many superb singers either are already or are daily journeying steadily more towards being forgotten. Sadly, opera is not subject to the aphorism that suggests that an ignorance of history dooms the ill-informed to repeat it. Great artists are not born of neglect of the past, and the young soprano who has never heard the voice of Claudia Muzio will not achieve that legend’s brilliance via the turning of some miraculous cycle. Originality is a worthy quality in an artist, but how is originality measured if there is no cognisance of what has come before? This disc is a potent reminder of how significant the artistic legacy of an overlooked singer can be. Thankfully, Pedro Lavirgen enjoyed the major career on the world’s stages that his electrifying voice deserved. This release does not redress the neglect of this marvellous singer by major record labels, but it contributes to the discography an awesome example of some of the finest tenor singing of the 20th Century. The listener who spends seventy minutes with this disc will have nothing to say but, ¡Muchas gracias!
