Mario Del Monaco


On the occasion of what would have been his 99th birthday, here is a tribute to the great tenor's all too infrequent journeys into Wagner's repertoire.  I would have loved to have seen Del Monaco as the Swan Knight, a role he was perfect for.

Fortunately he recorded In Fernem Land twice and a couple of chunks of Siegmund's music from Act 1 of Die Walkure.  Perfect listening for a Sunday afternoon.  I hope you enjoy yours.
