Leonard Warren (1911-1960) was a legend in his own day. A supreme interpreter of Verdi roles especially. His career ended tragically when he collapsed on stage of a cerebral hemorrhage at the Met, his home for 22 seasons, just after singing Don Carlo's aria, 'Urna fatale del mio destino' (La Forza del destino, Act III) on 4 March, 1960, aged only 48.

A legend captured in this ten CD set from Germany, strangely entitled "Triumph und Tod mit Verdi" (Triumph and Death with Verdi). The collection includes a mix of live and recorded excerpts of most of his Verdi roles. Some CDs are confined to one opera (e.g., La Forza, Il Trovatore, Rigoletto - CDS 1, 2 and 3), others to several (e.g, Macbeth, Falstaff and Otello - CD 7)). The last three CDs feature Warren in non-Verdi roles for which he was also justly famous; for example as Scarpia (Puccini, Tosca - CD 8), and in the compositions by Leoncavallo (Pagliacci), Bizet (Carmen), Giordano (Andrea Chenier), and Ponichielli (La Gioconda), and others. There is some repetition of arias and scenes (from different sources with different casts), from Rigoletto for example, but to be expected in such a comprehensive anthology. An added plus, unlike most CDs devoted to a single artist, here you get to hear Warren in ensembles, providing context, featuring many other greats of the 20th century, like Giuseppe di Stefano, Richard Tucker, Ramon Vinay, Jan Peerce, Boris Christoff, Zinka Milanov, Astrid Varnay, Leonie Rysanek, Victoria de los Angeles, Leontyne Price, and Renata Tebaldi, to mention only a sample. A few of the takes from the live recordings of the 1940s sound a bit 'grainy' but Warren's voice is well-captured.

The set is a real bargain, 10 CDs for the price of one, allowing one to hear again an exceptional voice and artist.

The only thing wrong with this set is that 5 of the 10 discs have less than an hour of music. Six hours are taken from his studio recordings and three hours are live. The recordings date from 1939 to 1959 and it all sounds good. Five of the nine hours are devoted to Verdi. The set includes 63 minutes of Tosca live in 56 with Tebaldi and Tucker; 40 minutes of the Traviata recording of 56 with Carteri; 38 minutes of the Forza recording of 58 with Di Stefano; 31 minutes from each of his two recordings of Trovatore; 21 minutes of the Nile scene from his Aida recording of 55; 57 minutes from his Rigoletto recording of 1950 and 30 minutes from a 1944 Rigoletto performance with Milanov and Peerce conducted by Toscanini.

Leonard Warren's voice and acting ability made him RIGOLETTO. Just listen to him scream Gilda's name when she is abducted. This small deep velvet voice could tackle any role and his acting ability topped his greatness. Too bad he died on stage during Verdi's La Forza del Destino. Maybe that's the way he wanted to go, singing. opera.
