Cardiff Singer of the World Competition

1 post in this topic

BBC online does an excellent job with this competition. A link is below.

Winners include some international stars -- Karitta Mattila, Bryn Terfel and Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Also some who seem to be on their way-- Lisa Gasteen, Inger Dam-Jensen. Finalists include Monica Groop, Franz Hawlata, Tito Beltran, all of whom have significant operatic careers.

The jury, who also give public master classes, has been and remains very starry: Joan Sutherland, Carlo Bergonzi, Marilyn Horne, Gundula Janowitz, Sherrill Milnes, Dennis O'Neill, Galina Vishnevskaya.

Worth a look and a listen. The "Performer Profiles" has audio and video files of each of the performers.
