World premiere recording of the recital marking 40 years in the career of the famous Spanish tenor Alfredo Kraus. Each and every piece is sung with extreme elegance, noble aplomb and ease of emission, qualities that he attained through a formidable technique and wise career pacing. At age sixty-nine Kraus sings apparently without effort and with that aristocratic nonchalance that is one of the most evident and charming aspects of his style, all the more valuable in a day when a diametrically different type of tenor is in vogue. The DVD includes an interview with the singer, in which he discusses his life and performing career. Read less
