I would join you in that to make a minority of two.

Although I have to say that Milanov at her best (please note the qualifier!) would run Callas a
very close second. Milanov did not have Callas' dramatic projection and profound sense of
identification with the character - which, let us not forget, Callas sang many times on stage
early in her career. But Milanov was not negligible dramatically. Listening to her live
performances, I always get the impression that Milanov had a strong emotional empathy with
the "Forza" Leonora and Maddalena in "Andrea Chenier" that made her performances of those
roles very moving.
