"I loved him. He was the most real of all the tenors," said Richard Bonynge. "There was nothing phony about his performances. Something always happened when he was onstage. You could believe in him utterly, apart from the fact that the voice itself was very, very beautiful. It had a quality that touched the heart, and you were never conscious of technique or anything. It was a very big lyric voice. But really lyric - very sort of silvery, but round, and affecting. It got to you."

Vienna Opera Director Dominique Meyer presented the Spanish tenor Jaime Aragall with the Cross of Honour for Science and Art First Class this afternoon in the tea room of the Vienna State Opera.
Dominique Meyer stated that Aragall was one of Vienna's most favourite singers, his intense interpretations of the roles of Verdi, Puccini and also his des Grieux in Massenet's 'Manon' were unforgettable and without peer, before or since. Aragall has appeared in 431 performances of 'La Boheme' (Rodolfo) and 163 performances of 'La Traviata' (Alfredo) in Vienna.
