Oh yes! That’s beyond any comment. Here I think one can hear almost the full power and volume of this giant voice. One must turn loudspeaker down. I would suggest you write a relative warn like above!

Yes, you are right - very loud! He apparently filled the whole opera house with his voice without a mike.

It wasn't but a joke on my site ;) However, this was/is Caruso and one must feel it. The remastered recording is excellent.

The opportunity is taken to wish you a Happy Easter.

Well, even if it was a joke, it has some truth to it! - I don't have speakers, but earphones and this recording almost damaged me ears!
Wish you a Happy Easter too!

Yes, you are right. The first time I heard it also with earphones, which are anyway better than the speakers and therefore I wrote my first comment. Such a giant voice!

Yes, he had a large voice, indeed! Not many after him had such volume - maybe Tucker.

Here is a rendition with Richard Tucker http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IG7yICxAtCw and here another one with Mario del Monaco http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgnZIg7Fl4Q&feature=related . May be Del Monaco’s voice was more penetrating, but as to the volume I am not sure.

You can judge for yourself who closer to Caruso is.

PS: Of course there are many other renditions with both of them.

Hi Tom,

Here is another huge voice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ucX26tyntc However, one should take into consideration the quality of each recording. If we could hear Caruso recorded today, maybe we should have to turn the speakers off!!
Well, if you don’t like Jon Vickers, you won’t object my taste for Raina Kabaivanska ;)

I think they are both very good. I find del Monaco the closest to Caruso. In Tucker's performance I feel somehow that he withholds himself - maybe as if he pays attention to how he is singing.
Caruso is unrestrained and he forgets himself.
Thanks!

I absolutely agree. Mario del Monaco is closer to Caruso, although Caruso’s voice must have been sweeter, more “round”, so to say. What a pity that we cannot have him recorded with modern apparatuses.
Thanks, dear Tom.
