Mattia Battistini 27 February — 7 November was an Italian operatic baritone. He was called "King of Baritones". Battistini was born in Rome and brought up largely at Collebaccaro di Contigliano, a village near Rietiwhere his parents had an estate. His grandfather, Giovanni, and uncle, Raffaele, were personal physicians to the Pope and his father, Cavaliere Luigi Battistini, was a professor of anatomy at the University of Rome.
Battistini attended the Collegio Bandinelli and later the Istituto dell' Apollinare. Battistini dropped out of law school to study with Emilio Terziani who taught composition and with Venceslao Persichini professor of singing at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia —then the Liceo Musicale of Rome. Battistini worked with conductor Luigi Mancinelli and the composer Augusto Rotoli, and he consulted with baritone Antonio Cotogniin an effort to refine his technique.
However, this date is erroneously given by many reference books and articles as correct, but reveals careless and repeated copying from faulty sources. It has been proven by the painstaking research of Jacques Chuilon that the date should most likely be replaced by Saturday, 9 November Thomas Glasow; also to be found on page 17 of the author's original French edition Battistini, le dernier divo, Editions Romillat, Paris. In he went to Buenos Aires for the first time, touring South America for more than 12 months.
His success in this was enormous and it marked the beginning of his ascent to major operatic stardom. He also sang opposite Adelina Pattithe leading soprano of her era, in other Covent Garden productions. In such exulted and entrenched company there was not much attention paid to a new, unheralded young baritone!
Unlike his initial London experience, when Battistini made his debut at the important Teatro San Carlo in Naples inhe scored an immediate triumph. Two years later, he once more sailed to Buenos Aires to fulfil a series of singing engagements; but this proved to be his last trans-Atlantic excursion, and he never appeared again in South America. Battistini is said to have developed a permanent horror of oceanic travel due to his adverse experiences on that particularly rough voyage to Buenos Aires.
La Scala's audiences acclaimed him and he was re-engaged for the next season. He returned to Russia regularly, appearing there for 23 seasons in total, and touring extensively elsewhere in eastern Europe, using Warsaw as his stepping-stone. He would journey to Warsaw, Saint Petersburg, Moscow and Odessa like a prince, travelling in his own private rail coach with a retinue of servants and innumerable trunks containing a vast stage wardrobe renowned for its elegance and lavishness.
But his many social connections in Russia, and the favour that he enjoyed with the imperial family and the nobility, ensured that Russia—more than perhaps even Italy—became his artistic home prior to the outbreak of the First World Warin The Lo Vedremo - Mattia Battistini - Great Voices Of The Century - Mattia Battistini Baritone led to the destruction, by the Bolsheviks inof the Tsarist regime and the aristocratic society which had enriched touring Italian opera stars like Battistini and his tenor compatriots Francesco TamagnoFrancesco Marconi and Angelo Masini.
This history-shaping political development, coupled with Battistini's refusal to sing in the Americas, meant that his career after the war's conclusion in was confined to Western Europe. Battistini formed his own company of singers following the — war. He toured with them and appeared frequently in concerts and recitals. He sang in England for the final time inand gave his last concert performance one year before his death.
His last singing engagement occurred in GrazAustria, on 17 October He withdrew to his estate at Collebaccaro di Contigliano, Rieti, dying there from heart failure on 7 November Battistini's initial sequence of records were cut in Warsaw in for the Gramophone and Typewriter Company. He then, in the — period, recorded extensively for the Gramophone Co Ltd and its associated companies.
His records were issued in the USA by Victor. Battistini's last recording session took place during February The earliest of his discs feature a piano accompanist but his later sung offerings were backed by a small band of orchestral musicians and, occasionally, a few choristers.
EMIthe original producer, issued a complete Battistini collection 1. Mattia Battistini was esteemed as one of the greatest of singers and even a cursory acquaintance with his many discs will make it clear why he was so celebrated by his contemporaries. Fortunately the sound of Battistini's clear, high-placed and open-throated baritone voice took well to the primitive acoustic recording process with only his very lowest notes sounding pallid.
He also handled the trying conditions of the early sound 'studios', with their boxy confines and wall-mounted recording funnel, much better than did many of his contemporaries, who often felt inhibited or intimidated by their uninspiring surroundings. His singing was considered to be 'old-fashioned', even in the circa era. Consequently, his discs provide a retrospective guide to Italian singing practice of the early-to-midth century the era of Gaetano Donizetti and Vincenzo Bellini —as well as exemplifying the "grand manner" style of vocalism for which much Romantic operatic music was written.
Battistini delivers this kind of music in a virile, bold and patrician way. He is not averse, however, to showing off his voice by prolonging top notes or embellishing the written score with a liberality that might surprise 21st-century listeners who are imbued with the modern notion that a composer's work is sacrosanct. For some inexplicable reason he eschews on disc one of the key vocal ornaments at the disposal of all thoroughly schooled 19th-century bel canto singers: the trill.
Massenet transposed the protagonist's role downwards for baritone in a special version made especially for Battistini, harking back to an age when composers tailored their musical parts to fit the talents of one singer, and a singer of Battistini's stature could make almost any modifications seem acceptable.

The term has been used to describe a number of countries in Southeast Asia. Given the region's location and importance to trade routes between China and the Western world, certain countries in the region have become ethnically diverse. In the pre-Spanish era the Philippines was the trading nexus of various cultures and eventually became the melting pot of different nations.
This primarily consisted of the Chinese, Indian and Arab traders. This is also includes neighboring southeast Asian cultures. The cultures and races mixed with indigenous tribes, mainly of Austronesian descent i. The result was a mix of cultures and ideals. This melting pot of culture continued with the arrival of Europeans, mixing their western culture with the nation. The Spanish Empire colonized the Philippines for more than three centuries, and during the early 20th century, was conquered and annexed by the United States and occupied by the Empire of Japan during World War II.
In modern times, the Philippines has been the place of many retired Americans, Japanese expatriates and Korean students. And continues to uphold its status as a melting pot state today. Man is the most composite of all creatures Well, as in the old burning of the Temple at Corinth, by the melting and intermixture of silver and gold and other metals a new compound more precious than any, called Corinthian brass , was formed; so in this continent—asylum of all nations—the energy of Irish, Germans, Swedes, Poles, and Cossacks, and all the European tribes—of the Africans, and of the Polynesians—will construct a new race, a new religion, a new state, a new literature, which will be as vigorous as the new Europe which came out of the smelting-pot of the Dark Ages, or that which earlier emerged from the Pelasgic and Etruscan barbarism.
No reverberatory effect of The Great War has caused American public opinion more solicitude than the failure of the 'melting-pot. Blacks, Chinese, Puerto Ricans, etcetera, could not melt into the pot.
They could be used as wood to produce the fire for the pot, but they could not be used as material to be melted into the pot. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Melting-pot.
