presenter Ed Tapper returns on February 3 with the second half of his survey of
great Romanian singers, some of whom enjoyed major international careers, and
other great artists who seldom sang or recorded outside of their native Romania.
Presented last May, Part 1 introduced VRCS members to many fine historic Romanian
singers unknown to most American vocal fans, as well as highly unusual recordings
by those Romanian-born international superstars. In preparing last years
presentation, Ed claimed to have culled over 8 hours of rare Romanian vocal treasures.
So in order to present the very finest of these, a second half seemed necessary.
As was the case with Part 1, Ed will present a wide variety of singers from the
early decades of the 20th century to the present. There will be opera, operetta,
concert and lieder specialists performing in a multitude of different languages.
In addition to the bread and butter operatic composers, the discussion
will include selections of music by a few Romanian composers not mentioned in
Part 1, as well as a colorful smattering of Romanian folk songs.
The February lecture will be Eds eleventh VRCS program. In the past, his presentations have included many true rarities, as well as a few fun surprises. So please plan to be with us for what is certain to be yet another interesting and delightful program!
