Placido Domingo conducting and Rolando Villazon singing zarzuela in the new recording Gitano--this is a little bit weird. Is it a criticism that I am detecting a bit of cloning going on? No offense, Rolando, but you have disappeared into him. I know he's your hero and all, but it would be nice if we could tell which one of you is singing.
P.S. Am I allowed to change my mind? Naturally I'm allowed to do anything I want. That's the beauty of blogging. Rolando for me has that extra edge of passion. For emotion he wins over Domingo for me. Still. Sometimes they sound exactly the same.
