I love this. I get to say anything I want. I get to give advice to famous singers.
I advised Anna Netrebko to stay away from Strauss songs until she understands them better.
I advised Ben Heppner to improve his physical conditioning and try to stay within a comfortable legato.
Years ago I advised Cecilia to move the tessitura of her repertoire up.
And why stop at singers? Didn’t I advise potential opera composers to look for love plots to have any hope of lasting success for their creations?
Of course, I give only good advice.
I also advised Renée Fleming to take more risks and then criticized her for becoming someone else entirely in her jazz album. You can't win them all.
