She isn’t at all the sort of dark voice that would usually attract me. She is the violin and not the cello. She is the flute and not the French horn. She was nice looking without being beautiful, a good but certainly not great actress. Why her?
She is simply music. Of all the singers on record she is perhaps the most truly musical, the most deeply immersed in each composition she sings. She plays her voice like a great violinist, with nothing in the elegant way she uses her beautiful voice that would interrupt the flow of the phrase. In any language she is first herself, her glorious musical self, with the perfect emotion, the perfect musical expression for each piece. She is truly the fabulous Victoria de los Angeles.
