Notes & Reviews:

Born in Campina, Roumania, Petre Munteanu studied voice and violin at the Bucharest Conservatory. After winning First Prize in graduate studies, he was immediately engaged at the Bucharest State Opera. A year later he attended the Berlin Hochschule taking courses in lieder and oratorio. His real concert and opera career began at the end of the war in Italy, where he had become a citizen. He made his debut in 1947 in Cosi fan tutte at La Scala in Milan. He would also appear there in Stravinsky 's Persephone, the Bach St. Matthew Passion, Cimarosa 's Il Credulo and Berg 's Wozzeck. In addition, he appeared on the stages of Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice, Trieste and Palermo among others. He sang in operas, oratorios and recitals at the greatest European institutions, under such conductors as Mitropoulos, Stokowski, de Sabata, Rodzinski, Kubelik and Bohm. He also was a conductor and composed chamber music. Petre stood out from many contemporary tenors as the best example of a "highly civilized voice" - that is, a voice that strove not to assert itself as a natural gift or a mere element of physical beauty, but as being constantly disciplined in the service of music.
