Forsooth Opera Lovers!

Today we can celebrate the birthdays of

Mikhail Petrenko (1975)
Mado Robin (1918-1960)
Pablo Casals (1876-1973)

Also,, Porpora's "Arianna In Nasso" and Wolf-Ferrari's "Sly" premiered
on this date in 1733 and 1927, respectively.

The quote for today is: "To be a musician is a great privilege but it
is also a very great responsibility. One must think that to be a
musician is a gift - a gift from Nature. There is no great merit in us
except in loving this gift with respect and devotion and doing
everything possible to honor that gift by work and more work. We must
work with conviction and humility, searching for beauty, simplicity, and
the Truth. And it is for us musicians to do all in our power for a
better world. Music must carry the message of beauty, of love and of
Pablo Casals.

As always, a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our birthday artists for today and
all forum members who share their birthday with them.
