Hear the WFMT recital.

“For some time I have not heard such a talent at this young age, with a sound harking back to a quality I thought we had long lost.”

–Riccardo Chailly

Decca Artist Joseph Calleja has two CDs out, both listed as Editor’s Choice for Gramophone Magazine. For the last few weeks, he’s been part of Chicago’s musical landscape, singing Rodolfo opposite Anna Netrebko in Lyric Opera of Chicago’s production of La Bohème. Maybe it’s because he arrived at WFMT with two kids in tow, but Calleja shows incredible humanity and humility in this WFMT interview with Lisa Flynn, even as he belts out a world-class performance.

    I very much enjoyed Joseph Calleja’s interview by Lisa Flynn. Mr. Calleja was informative and honest about answering some difficult questions and I totally love how he considers himself and other professional opera singers to be ambassadors for that greatest of art forms. He has an amazing, beautiful voice. Thanks to both of you and to WFMT for this marvelous impromptu.
