Musical Quote for Today

"Tenors sweet blood over it [the high C in the aria "Di quella pira"], [and] develop ulcers because of it. Yet ... Verdi wrote a G ... a note that any tenor in any glee club is expected to be able to sing."
—Placido Domingo, tenor

Try to find any recording of Tommy Reilly. He was a real virtuoso and the combination of harmonic with strings sounds fantastic.
