Aldo Baldin - A Life For Music
(Color-NTSC / Brazil and Germany)
Synopsis: Aldo Baldin – A Life for Music unfolds the experience of the great Brazilian tenor, who conquered Europe in the '80s and at the time he was considered one of the finest interpreters of Bach. Baldin worked with the greatest conductors in Europe, such as Helmuth Rilling, Rolf Beck, Sir Neville Marriner, Peter Schreier, Karl Richter and Herbert Von Karajan. He recorded over 100 albums and won a Grammy in 1981 for the album 'The Creation', by Haydn. He was also professor at the Karlruhe School of Music and was sought after by music students from all over the world.
"In my opinion, Aldo Baldin is the greatest Brazilian singer. No one else has been as great, as perfect, as brilliant as he was. (...) He brought forth music and singing immaculately from within himself. He was a person who breathed music. He was a predestined."
(Eliane Sampaio, President of the Brazilian National Academy of Music)
