The World's Greatest Music
The tenor Joseph Calleja has got tongues wagging all over the place, with many referring to him as the next Pavarotti. But one other giant of the vocal world, Mario Lanza, led to Joseph Calleja getting a coveted Classic BRIT nomination in the Album of the Year category.
Calleja's tribute to Mario Lanza works so well because he refuses at any point to slip into simply 'doing an impression' of the great tenor. Particularly on this aria from Giordano's opera, Fedora, the voice and delivery are unmistakably Calleja. Photo: Mathias Bothor / Decca 2011
