Verismo is Here
Folks. It doesn't get better than this. Tony is also in top form. I like best the schmaltzy ones. I'm sure others will be able to find a lot of words, but I just let my heart go where it wants.
I love Anna. She is one of my favorite singers. The reasons are many, but it has to have begun with her incredible charisma. I'm a long timer--my first encounter was a live performance of Ruslan and Lyudmila in San Francisco in 1995. I love the sound of her voice and think it only becomes more beautiful and her technique more spectacular. With this album she is at her peak. Her heart is always present in the music. For this she will live forever.
