The World's Greatest Music
As Classic FM prepares to celebrate its 20th birthday, we reflect on some of the inspirational and influential stars and classical musicians that we have been lucky enough to meet.
Anne-Marie Minhall interviewed world leading tenor Placido Domingo for Classic FM. Born in 1941, Spanish tenor Domingo was taken by his family to Mexico in 1950 where he studied the piano, conducting and singing under Igor Markevich. His first important tenor role was Alfredo in Monterrey, Mexico, in 1961, the same year that he made his American début as Arturo (Lucia di Lammermoor) in Dallas. While he has undertaken a wide range of roles, Domingo became particularly identified with Verdi’s Otello.
