Notes & Reviews:

When we hear the voice of the authentic 'lirico spinto' tenor Pedro Lavirgen (b. 1930) today, we may legitimately ask how much more prestigious would his career have been in our own times. Able to take on the heaviest repertoire without apparent problem, the burnished, shining color of his timbre, vocal strength accompanied by long breaths, real passion, sculptured diction and phrasing and incredible volume; these qualities complete the picture of this singer greatly admired by his public.
