But I like to hear new things, new voices, new phrasing. They are not required to top Ms Price because no one ever will. I notice the more I blog about music the more love I feel, both for the music and for the artists making it.
The new Barenboim recording has soloists that all come from Germany and Latvia, singers who feel it differently. I don't require other singer's to top Leontyne Price, but could they please try to wail just a bit now and then.
This is Renata Scotto, and she definitely wails.
