Bari, Bari Good Baritones

By Galegirl

Walter Berry, D. Fischer-Dieskau, Hakan Hagegard, Sherrill Milnes, Hermann Prey, Bernd Weikl. 

With the exception of Sherrill Milnes, the names of these great baritones might not be household words, but they are arguably on par with well-known opera greats such as Marilyn Horne, Renata Scotto, Beverly Sills, Leontyne Price, and Montserrat Caballé.

Here are some clips of these great baris. All very different.

Which is your favorite?

We’ll start with a clip of Walter Berry from Beethoven’s lone opera Fidelio.

Listen to D. Fischer-Dieskau in this 1960 clip from Strauss’s Arabella, which I’m seeing this weekend in Philadelphia.

And now for something completely different, here’s Hakan Hagegard, from the film The Magic Flute directed byIngmar Bergman:

Next up is Sherrill Milnes in Pagliacci singing “Si Puo” from 1978:

Now a clip from Hermann Prey singing the ever popular “Largo al Factotum” from The Barber of Seville:

Lastly, a clip of Bernd Weikl (1994) as Wolfram von Eschenbach in TANNHÄUSER.
