Whenever someone tells me he dreamed, I wonder if he realizes that he has never done anything but dream.

Life is an experimental journey undertaken involuntarily. It is a journey of the spirit through the material world and, since it is the spirit that travels, it is the spirit that is experienced. That is why there exist contemplative souls who have lived more intensely, more widely, more tumultuously than others who have lived their lives purely externally.

What is Verdi’s secret? - Villazón on Verdi

Rolando’s new album is a unique and carefully-crafted personal selection of Verdi arias and songs that takes us on a musical journey, beginning with Verdi’s earliest composition, dating from 1838, and continuing through popular and lesser known pieces all the way to the very last aria he wrote for the tenor voice: the beautiful “Dal labbro il canto estasiato vola” from Falstaff (1893). The new Verdi album arrives this November from Deutsche Grammophon.

I posted the wrong video… this is the one that I was talking about. :-/ I’m a little sleepy. Sorry.  LOL  Look at his face and hands when he talks about him. He can barely contain himself.  He loves what he does. :D



Artemis:  I ran into this video again as I searched for a possible duplicate of the Toscanini post.  It makes me smile so I’ll post it again.  He is just so excited.  :D
