Since the beginning of Plácido Domingo’s career, which now spans 52 years, Verdi has been one of the most important composers for him. Following countless performances as a tenor, Domingo has now recorded an album of Verdi arias and scenes for baritone. “Verdi is a wellspring of great music, and every lyric singer is grateful to him,” says Domingo.
