This Romanian tenor, born in Kostanza (1935) debut at age 21; then quickly graced opera stages around the world with a solid and very exciting spinto voice. His international breakthrough as a voice to be reckoned with came 1972, as Edgardo in Hamburg. This performance prompted him to be invited to Munich, Berlin, Vienna, Chicago, London, Zurich, Monte Carlo, Rome, Dresden, and the MET. He sang the thankless role of Don Carlo, opposite Renata Scotto’s Elisabetta, to immense acclaim.
His repertoire of choice was the Italian fach: Turridu, the Duke, Alfredo, Rodolfo, des Grieux, Calaf, Cavaradossi, et al.
His recorded aural posterity is scarce; two recital LPs were once available from Intercord, released in 1976 and 1978 respectively.
