 Lebendige Vergangenheit: Leonard Warren   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Unlike Tibbett, whose singing was more sharply declamatory and intrinsically "inward-looking" in the presentation of his characters, Warren's genius lay in giving a well-defined character within the parameters of what the composer wrote.
Like his vocal coach, Giuseppe de Luca, Warren drew his character with fine shadings and coloration of the voice, much like his successor Sherrill Milnes, though Milnes lacked the metallic ring of Warren and Tibbett.
I always loved these recordings because, unlike his mono complete recordings, there was more "space" around the voice, and a voice as big as Warren's sometimes sounded a bit cramped or congested when the soundspace was too dry.
