Notes & Reviews:

Despite possessing an impressive voice and a brilliant upper register, Albert da Costa never achieved the level of recognition afforded to his contemporaries among the concert-going public at large. This was due, in part, to the fact that he made very few recordings. Like many other heldentenors, he began his career as a baritone with the Baltimore Opera. It was there that he began to study to become a tenor. He then moved on to the Metropolitan Opera. His career came to a tragic and sudden end when he was fatally injured in an automobile accident.
