Notes & Reviews:

In a career lasting almost 40 years, the operatic bass bruce martin has taken his place among the great singers of the age. He has brought his incomparable artistry to the great opera roles of verdi, mozart and especially wagner; he has appeared as lover and lovelorn, master and servant, god and demon, vagabond and king. This magnificent double album features not only opera classics but also highlights from the oratorio and art song repertoire, and even musical comedy, spirituals and popular standards: a tribute to the versatility of this australian living legend.
