Get well very soon, Montserrat Caballé!

It’s been reported all over the net today (like here and here) that the great Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballé (79) suffered a small stroke and broke an arm on Saturday.

The great Caballé was preparing for a charity concert in Ekaterinburg, Russia. She refused to enter a Russian hospital, so she was flown home to Spain where she’s recovering.

Here are Caballé & Pavarotti singing the duet “Vicino a te” (“By your side”) from the Giordano opera Andrea Chénier from the complete Decca recording. This aria is also available on the 2 CD Decca collection “Vissi d’arte: The magnificent voice of Montserrat Caballé”.

All the best to the great Caballé! Get well very soon, Montserrat Caballé!
