MDY: For mezza voce, it takes so much more energy and control than for me to blare it.
As Roberto, Earl of Leicester, Eric Cutler love-duet-ted with Maria and begged Elisabetta's mercy with a clear tenor and sweet mezza voce. Canadian bass-baritone Robert Gleadow supported the deposed Scottish queen sonorously as Giorgio Talbot, and bass Oren Gradus was darkly implacable as Maria's nemesis, Lord Guglielmo Cecil.
In order to produce a free and well-developed tone of a telling quality, as well as to acquire a correct and distinct pronunciation, one should at first practice with a moderate expenditure of breath; that is, with mezza voce; and by degrees more voice may be used.
One need never worry; far instance, about the possibility of being swamped by the orchestra, but at the same time, the singer faces the problem of a great deal of piano and mezza voce singing (the test of all good singers) while carrying a vocal line of quality and vitality.
The gradations of strength and varieties of tone-colour, like the cultivation of the mezza voce, are things that cannot be wholly explained or taught in books.
With further study to develop a solid mezza voce and more vocal discipline, he will likely go far.
A modern listener might (and often should) take issue with an early-century singer's stylistic excesses when singing Verdi, but the listener should also acknowledge and applaud the many vocal virtues (such as seamless legato, the correct use of portamenti and use of mezza voce) that were among the singer's technical and interpretative arsenal.
Those accustomed to an Azucena with a meaty middle and low voice might have been disappointed in mezzo-soprano Kathryn Day, who employs chest voice, a rather diffuse mezza voce and then shifts into lyric soprano for the required high notes.
Reservations regarding her sometimes unfocused mezza voce and lack of weight in the chest voice were forgotten in her Act II aria, "Vissi d'arte."
