It's Impossible to be too Romantic

Wednesday, 14 January 2004 - 12:00am

"It's impossible to be too romantic' Barker said ... '[Puccini's] music is romantic, dramatic and as a performer it's fantastic music to sing ... I love all of that passion and drama.' Barker ... has come to be known as an expert in the Puccini repertoire ... 'I respond very much to Puccini's heroines who are always real women.' Barker worked with renowned opera conductor Richard Bonynge ... to record the album. 'I enjoy recording because I like the fact you can do it until you get it absolutely right and the sound quality on these Melba Recordings is so wonderful."
