Reblog – Teresa Rampazzi’s voice and her unique piece “Taras” — laura zattra

Curious to hear what Teresa Rampazzi’s (1914-2001) voice sounded like? This is a unique opportunity. This audio track I’ve uploaded on SoundCloud is part of a radio programme aired in 1985 “Le nuove frontiere della musica” (New frontiers of music; director: Tonino Delfino).
