I present to you a lovely synopsis of Mr. Q from the excellent NY Times Magazine article on Quasthoff, “A Transcendent Voice”. Btw, if the NY Times claimes this story as an unfortunate casualty of their archives in the next few days, this week only (from November 6-12, 2006) is, “Free Access Week,” and you can test-drive their TimesSelect premium $$$ package for free, and catch-up on all the tawdry NYC tales since 1851.
(Oh yeah, it’s also Bryn Terfel’s birthday today, too, but I have a message for him: Bryn, put down that damn piece of cake! It’s going to go straight to your hips!) :(((
(btw, am I the only one who thinks Bryn Terfel and Mario Batali were separated at birth?)
