Teresa Berganza’s concert in Lugano in the Spring
Read more of 1990 may be considered a synthesis of her vocal and interpretive are, of her musical intelligence, and of her elegant choices (qualities she has shown throughout her long career). She’s admired first of all for the beauty of her mezzo-soprano voice, rich, luminous and mellow, for its range and evenness, its solid high notes, and impeccable technique for fluid and perfectly produced coloratura. But there’s something more in her singing: taste, exquisite phrasing, expressiveness sought with the music, with warmth and pure compassion.
