Google Translate:
Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel is not just an opera star. Although for most scenes sang the most demanding operatic roles, also devoted himself to Broadway musicals, he filmed songs from his native region or participated in the volunteer Mormon church. Terfel bit of everything on offer today's recital at the Prague Municipal House.

"It will be a memorial concert," says the singer for HN and program highlights the introductory aria from Rossini and Puccini operas, Wagner monologues Te Deum sung by the choir and the character of Scarpia in Puccini's Tosca last aria, which before death farewell Boris Godunov in Mussorgsky's opera. Godunov year Terfel sang at London's Covent Garden.
Plenty of opera singers of the genre crossover dedicated occasionally. Terfel, however, still. The New York Metropolitan Opera sings Wotan in Wagner's Ring des Nibelungen, which is also transmitted his time in Czech cinemas, and at the same time with the same fervor winds album of Christmas carols.

It attaches to your rear. "I mix genres, from the moment I began to sing," she says, and describes how Wales were held every weekend amateur singing contest whose participants had to know everything from folk music through musical songs to operatic arias. "It taught me not to discriminate in music," he adds.
Terfel lot depends on the spiritual aspect of music. Jedenapadesátiletý singer grew up on a farm in north Wales, where everyone met on Sunday in church. He began singing in the local choir, and he sees it so that it actually never stopped.

"Last month I sang a new cantata by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins wrote on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan tragedy in which 144 people died," says Terfel, referring to the landslide, which occurred in October 1966. The soil had blocked the elementary school, farm buildings and houses. "It was one of my most profound experiences of singing. I did not know if I open my mouth. But it was a spiritual experience," he adds.

Terfelův interest in the spiritual side of music explains why the singer thirteen years ago accepted the invitation of the Mormon church choir and performed with him at Christmas concerts in the US Salt Lake City, where the chorus comes. She began the collaboration that continued stating Mendelssohn's oratorio Elijah and Handel's Messiah and a far culminated in a joint recording Homeward Bound

"The founders of this church were Welsh and where she still sings a lot of people from Wales. This is my face elicits a smile. And when you smile while singing, there is something magical," he adds.

Also in Prague today Terfel will accompany the choir. Just will not go about the Mormons, but the Prague Philharmonic Choir and added to it in Verdi, Puccini, Donizetti and Musorgsky. Since the Prague Corps has not yet worked, Terfel presents just how grand may sound. "If we are all in form, with a Te Deum raise people from the seats," he indulges in advance.

When he was Terfel in Prague five years ago the last time, at one point he walked off the stage and sang directly to the audience. "It was completely spontaneous," he recalls now and then assigns it the role of Don Giovanni, which reputedly woke seducer. Today Giovanni sings - but he wants to continue to surprise.
