Best of Beno Blachut (recordings of legendary Czech tenor during 40s and 50s , CD)

£5.99

Product description

Beno Blachut (1913-1985) was the leading Czech tenor of the 20th century. He and other talented artists of his generation succeeded in keeping Czech operatic repertoire abreast with international competition, well in the 1960s, by which time, Czechoslovakia was well into its era, as an Eastern Bloc nation.

He had the harshest of childhoods ... one years-old, when his father entered WWI, leaving his mother, to care for her family. Beno was denied an education, due to poverty in both his immediate family, and, indeed, the entire region, of the area of his birth. He went on, to toil in a boiler shop, in the late 20s / early 30s, until he lost the job, in the Great Depression, at the age of 20.

This, however, was a blessing in disguise, for it led to his friends prodding the shy young lad from Vitkovice, to audition for a place in the Prague National Conservatiore of Music ...
