On February 10 of this year was the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great Italian basso Cesare Siepi. I found that this milestone was scarcely noted in the opera press.
The parterre team is glad to make available a professionally produced recording of the February 3rd memorial held in honor of parterre box founder James Jorden.
I clearly remember the day I first heard the voice of Cesare Siepi.
Tristan has been the season-launching opera three times before now, but good luck finding someone to provide a firsthand account of the last time.
