CD84242 French Tenor MIGUEL VILLABELLA [1892 - 1954] wery good!

MIGUEL VILLABELLA tenor [1892 – 1954] Miguel Villabella, though remembered as a quintessential French tenor, was actually a Basque, born in Bilbao in 1892. His father was a singer, a famous Zarzuela baritone, from whom the young tenor learned much but a move to Paris led to a meeting with Lucien Fugère, doyen of French bass-baritones and musical life in Paris. He made a concert debut in San Sebastian in 1917 and his operatic debut (Tosca) a year later, opened at the Opéra-Comique in 1920 and thereafter, once established, was seldom heard outside France (he did get as far as Brussels and though he was billed for a Florence appearance it can’t be confirmed he actually appeared). His career wound down after the Second War – his stage career ended in 1940 - as he devoted more and more time to teaching and he died in 1954 after routine surgery. He took the expected roles, Don José, Hoffmann, Fernando (in Così), Des Grieux, Rinuccio and Gérald amongst them. He sang under Bruno Walter and recorded Lully (though there’s none here) so he was certainly no one-dimensional tenor. (…..)
