Motivation and Inspiration
A collection of inspiring quotes, moving performances and exceptional singing
Fritz Wunderlich sings “Kuda, kuda” (Eugene Onegin)
Pavarotti sings Bellini’s “Ma rendi pur contento”
Dawn Upshaw / The Rake’s Progress
Sometimes I send my students a recording or performance that I think they should hear. This aria from The Rake’s Progress by Stravinsky is phenomenal and Dawn Upshaw sings with absolute perfection.
It doesn’t get much better than this. The voice is free, especially in the high range, the diction wonderful, fantastic coloratura. The positioning of the voice is perfect, totally equal in all of the registers. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!
