Verdi was one of the greatest, the most successful, and the longest-lived of all composers. Nearly a century after his death, many of his operas remain in the standard repertory, and some, such as Rigoletto, Il trovatore, La traviata, and Aida, are among the most popular of all operas
Leonard Warren, American baritone by Mary Jane Phillips-Matz( file )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,205 libraries worldwide
"Leonard Warren, the great American baritone, was born on 21 April 1911 in New York City in the Bronx, the first of three children of parents who came from Russia. A descendant of three generations of furriers, Warren turned his back on his family's trade and began a singing career that took him from the Radio City Music Hall Glee Club to pinnacles of achievement in celebrated theatres and halls in North and South America and Europe. He become an interpreter of Verdi; no baritone of his era made such a mark in the parts that became his signatures: the title roles in Rigoletto, Macbeth, and Simon Boccanegra, Count di Luna in Il trovatore, Amonasro in Aida, Iago in Otello, Barnaba in La Gioconda, Tonio in Pagliacci, and Scarpia in Tosca."--Jacket
Puccini : a biography by Mary Jane Phillips-Matz( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 987 libraries worldwide
Phillips-Matz also untangles the threads of the gifted artist's complex and contradictory character. She reveals a sophisticated composer who often drew upon exotic thematic material and an elegant cosmopolite who loved his several villas, expensive cars, boats, and fine clothes. Yet Puccini remained passionately wedded to the simple life of the Tuscan countryside of his youth. This is the place the Maestro returned to in times of turmoil to share the communal joys of hunting and playing cards with his neighbors."--Jacket

Verdi's Simon Boccanegra exists in two versions: that of the 1857 original and that of the 1881 revision. The texts of the libretto of both versions are included in this guide, with a number of essays which focus on the differences between the two. Rodolfo Celleti provides the story's historical context, setting the events of the real life of Simon Boccanegra against the unification of Italy, which formed the political backdrop to the composition of both versions of Verdi's opera. James A. Hepokoski gives a detailed synopsis of the 1881 score, and indicates the ways in which Verdi radically re
