Notes and Editorial Reviews

Heroic Tenors - a welcome object of malicious mockery and ridicule! Sensitive musicians consider them a necessary evil, modern stage directors bulky stage props, conductors reluctantly put up with them as they would an awkward and poorly tuned instrument while for today's generation of singers the term heldentenor itself almost equals a swearword. Such unanimous disapproval makes one sit and think: could there possibly be a fair bit of envy involved? After all, the heroic tenor was - and still is, presuming something like it still exists - the highest paid voice in the hierarchy of an operatic ensemble. Or is it just to defame an expression which in the "good old days" represented something of an ideal which today seems unattainable?
