Product description

Product Description

Before Domingo, Carreras and Pavarotti caught the public's imagination, three other legendary tenors, Enrico Caruso, Beniamino Gigli and Jussi Björling, defined the art form. •Presented by internationally-renowned British tenor Nigel Douglas, this fascinating documentary examines the lives and musical legacies of these celebrated tenors. Through rare archive footage, including some of their finest arias and songs, as well as interviews, this film looks at each vocalist and how their unique talents not only shaped their art, but caused them to become singing superstars who inspired and influenced subsequent generations of singers throughout the world.

From the Contributor

Enrico Caruso’s first singing teacher told him "Your voice is like the whistling of the wind through a window"; but when he died the London Times felt able to declare "It is quite safe to say that no tenor voice equal to his, in its combination of power and extreme beauty of quality, has been heard in this generation." •Jussi Björling was a native of the Swedish town of Borlange, and although, like his idol Caruso, he died at a tragically early age, he spent a remarkable proportion of his life singing in public. He was still only 19 when he started appearing in leading roles in the Royal Opera, Stockholm, and by the age of 25 was launched on an international career, singing roles as demanding as Radames and Manrico, with most of the world’s great opera houses taking their place in the queue.•Beniamino Gigli naturally suffered from people’s insistence on calling him Caruso’s successor. In the sense of his being the world’s most popular Italian tenor the label was justified, but Gigli was far too adept to ape his great predecessor in a vocal sense. In time he became a seriously rich man - starring in numerous films had been a help - although he himself was fond of saying, with sincere self-recognition, "Apart from my voice I am a very ordinary person."
