FEDERICO FRESCHI (article first published : 2001-02-2)

Federico Freschi, who partnered Angela Gilbert in Music Revivalís Diva concert recently returns for a solo performance tomorrow evening (February 3).

In this gala concert he will be exploring the entire repertoire of the Baritone art. The strong and darkly colored male voice is often relegated to a supporting role in classical opera but takes the spotlight in the modern musical. Federico will be singing items in English, Italian, French German and Russian from Italian and French opera (Gounod, Faust, Verdi, La Traviata), romantic German art songs (Schubert and Strauss), throaty Russian overtures (Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff) and pointed English airs (Vaughan Williams). Also included will be favourites and some not-often-heard numbers from the American musicals My Fair Lady and Camelot.

Federico trained at the UCT Opera School, has a masters degree in fine art and is currently much in demand singing in concerts in Johannesburg. He recently appeared in concert performances of La Traviata and La Boheme.

The concert takes place at Wedgwood in Hilton at 19h30. Tickets R60 include wine, coffee and biscuits. Booking essential. Phone (033) 342-3051 or e-mail chris@musicrevival.co.za
