Notes & Reviews:

Leonard Warren (1911-1960) was the acknowledged Metropolitan Opera successor to the previous leading baritone, Lawrence Tibbett. He dominated the Met stage, especially in Verdi roles, from 1938 until his death. Warren had one of the most operatic deaths in Met history. He was appearing in 1960 in Verdi's La forza del destino and had just begun to sing the aria "Urna fatale" ("Fatal urn of my destiny") when he suffered a heart attack and died on stage in front of a packed hall of horrified spectators. This two-disc compilation is the definitive overview of this great artist's legacy.
