Spanish singer Teresa Berganza, unforgettable “Carmen”, is dead

-

She was Karajan’s “Carmen of the Century”, the ideal interpreter of Mozart and Rossini: the great Spanish mezzo-soprano Teresa Berganza died in her hometown of Madrid on May 13, at the age of 89. Aix-en-Provence had discovered her in the summer of 1957, a voice more insolently velvety than the night sky, a 24-year-old young woman who was to become one of the favorite singers of French music lovers. Born in the Spanish capital on March 16, 1933, little Teresa was early introduced to music (music theory and piano) before pursuing full studies at the conservatory. A wonderful childhood, in a family whose watchword is love. Her first memories, the war over, straddle her father’s shoulders, “to better listen to the municipal Banda on Sundays” as she told Le Monde in 2005. “We played Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner there. Every week, we also went to one of the Prado rooms. My father explained the history of art to us by mixing the real and the fantastic. He read us Alexandre Dumas, Victor Hugo, Cervantes, the Russians… He was a man of the left. He had served a year in prison and Mom had taken up sewing to raise my brother, my sister and me. But we were happy. » Read our archive (2005): Article reserved for our subscribers Teresa Berganza, a rich voice from her years From the age of 8, she was introduced to singing by Lola Rodriguez Aragon (a pupil of Elisabeth Schumann), who form in the Mozartian and Rossinian repertoire. The young girl has an exceptional voice, the amplitude of which covers the ranges of mezzo and soprano. It has the best: the full roundness of the one, the virtuosity of the other, capable of effortlessly reaching the counter-E flat. It was in February 1957 that Teresa Berganza made her concert debut in Madrid and then at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris. Love at first sight in Aix-en-Provence 1957, a prosperous year which saw the young singer fly off to Italy, stringing together roles, notably filming a Rossinian Isabella for television in L’Italienne à Alger (DVD published by Hardy Classic) before making his debut in Aix-en-Provence in the clothes of the sensual Dorabella of Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte under the direction of Hans Rosbaud. Reciprocal love at first sight between the singer and the great festival which will make her one of its figures alongside Teresa Stich-Randall, Luigi Alva, Rolando Panerai and Gabriel Bacquier. On the stage of the Théâtre de l’Archevêché, the young woman wrote the Mozartian history of Aix – Cosi fan tutte (1957, 1961, 1965), Les Noces de Figaro (1960, 1962, 1964). But he also became Rossinian in The Barber of Seville (1958, 1965), Monteverdian in L’Incoronazione di Poppea (1961, 1964), without forgetting Dido and Aeneas by Purcell (1960, 1961).
