 GHIAUROV LIVE May 7, 2012 By noel m. (barden ridge, nsw) See All My Reviews "Amazing singer with such a long and distinguished career. I much rather listen to him live in concert as he was able to connect and show particular rapport with his audience. Any possibility for more
live recordings of this great bass would be welcomed.
