BARITONES, that is.

Giuseppe Verdi came on like Vesuvius, leveling tired formulas beneath a new soundscape; forever altering the vocal profession. By the close of Verdi’s incredible fifty-three-year output, singers were born to be specialists; with the quality of the voice (in addition to register) dictating repertoire.

On Tuesday morning (9:00 AM), Carl Grapentine brings you three legendary baritones of the last century; singers who were made for roles like “Germont” (La traviata) and “Rigoletto.”

Think of it as the The Three Tenors, but a little lower. Carl will feature Sherrill Milnes, Tito Gobbi and Robert Merrill singing signature Verdi roles.
