Luisa Tetrazzini

WAS £12.99 £10.39

Product description

Very slight creasing to dust jacket edges. Very clean tight copy, looks unread. A biography of the coloratura soprano that details her performances throughout Europe and the U.S. including extracts from contemporary reviews and personal memoirs of those who knew her. Her colourful life is balanced by more serious discussion of her technical abilities and the book is completed with a full discography compiled by world expert, Thomas Kaufman. - - No biography has been published about Luisa Tetrazzini The Diva whom Patti named as her successor and whose memoirs, My Life Of Song, were 'ghosted' by Fred Gaisberg who wrote later that he felt she was determined to show only the facade of her crowded life to the world. The result of many years research in Europe, America and Russia, this book reveals for the first time the extraordinary true facts and includes a chronology and a comprehensive discography. The resurgence of Tetrazzini's old records on some admirable CD's in recent years has aroused new interest in a singer whom Victor Gollancz described as 'the most brilliant and lively of the Coloraturas I have ever heard'. Charles Neilson Gattey covers in some detail critical assessments of Tetrazzini's talents by her contemporaries.
