Guest 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 year’s 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.

Ed Tapper has taught Music and Opera History at the University of Massachusetts in Boston and at Suffolk University, and is a frequent lecturer throughout New England. He is the owner of Orpheus Classics, a renowned retail store at 362 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, devoted to rare opera and classical music recordings, scores, autographs and memorabilia.

The February lecture will be Ed’s 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!
