Am still under the weather, so here are a few videos.
First up, Dmitri Hvorostovsky and BrynTerfel, Battle of the Baritones – kinda dumb, kinda cute – who do you prefer?
That’s not really a very good comparison. Let’s try them separately with the same music – since they mention Ombra mai fu, we’ll try that.
Here’s Dimitri singing the piece in concert
And Bryn – not recording“>in concert, sadly, but a recording.
They’re both wonderful, but I say Bryn is more expressive and has a more relaxed legato! Because he wins, he gets a solo! Here he is, brilliant and funny with Rossini: Miei Rampolli Femminini
