Jerry Hadley: A Song of Naples. In fact, I think this is the best album of his I've ever heard. What's particularly nice about the recording is that Hadley and Bonynge have selected a mix of highly popular and rather rarefied fare, giving listeners the opportunity to hear some completely new gems in addition to the hoary chestnuts. Jerry Hadley certainly had one of the loveliest and sweetest tenor voices of his time but, unfortunately, encountered vocal problems later on.

Jerry Hadley (June 16, 1952 – July 18, 2007) was an American operatic tenor. He received three Grammy awards for his vocal performances in the recordings of Jenůfa (2004 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording), Susannah (1995 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording), and Candide (1992 Grammy Award for Best Classical Album). Hadley was a leading American tenor for nearly two decades. He was mentored by soprano Joan Sutherland and her husband, conductor Richard Bonynge

Jerry Hadley Opera singer With his boyish charm, boundless energy, and supreme gift for phrasing, American opera singer Jerry Hadley spent his life onstage, spreading his lyric tenor around the globe. The album won a 1991 Grammy for Best Classical Album. Hadley's recording of Susannah won a Grammy for Best Opera Recording in 1994, as did his recording of Jenufa in 2003. With the Munich Radio Orchestra) A Song of Naples: Neapolitan Songs, RCA, 1996. With the Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden) Jenufa: Complete Opera, Erato, 2002.

Jerry Hadley: A Song of Naples. Although Jerry Hadley may not have the reputation of some of the world's other great tenors, his voice is truly beautiful and his straightforward, unegotistical style is refreshing. Everything about this disc is perfect, it is superbly recorded, the orchestration is just right, and the two singers (Hampson is, as he always is, masterful) blend flawlessly. The Pearl Fishers Duet, taken at a relatively leisurely pace, is absolutely riveting for its sheer beauty and probably ranks with the great recordings ever of this masterpiece. 15 people found this helpful.
