Notes and Editorial Reviews

His portrayal of Falstaff was Stabile's masterpiece. What was it exactly that to many connoisseurs made him surpass the greatest Falstaffs of all time? The voice itself could not compete with those of his illustrious colleagues. The low range remained colorless throughout his career, his middle range later had a certain harshness and the high notes tended to be affected by a tremolo when he sang full out, but he was a singing chameleon. On stage he was not merely a singer who played a role, he actually was the character and was able to provide in a flash by just a little gesture of nuance a total insight into the character he portrayed. He was also a master of recitative and declamation. Even without ever having seen him on stage, this Read more singer's records express a spontaneous and quicksilvery liveliness which is a combination of perfect diction and an incredible variety of shades and colors without the slightest hint of calculation. The singer Mariano Stabile may not be among the greatest voices of our century, but his artistic performance as an actor (both vocal and histrionic) will range among the most refined accomplishments of our century.
