Brian Asawa RIP

So sad to hear of the death of the marvellous singer Brian Asawa.  The Aria from BB#5 and two Villa-Lobos songs were highlights of his 1999 album Vocalise, with ASMF and Sir Neville Marriner.

  1. I met Brian in Bogota Colombia, and had the honor to watch is unforgettable performance,
    Subsequently when I was by San Francisco we used to get together for a cup of coffee, and engage in long conversation about Music and its evolution , we talk about classic Mexican rancheras and the vocal technique of those singers, that gender not having any consequence on the gender which Brian executed brilliantly entertained us to take a break , and it was a nice visit. The Human quality of Brian Asawa was one of a kind. we are going to have Brian in our hearts for a long time and he has immortalized his voice with those pages of baroque music. and the contribution to Modern opera artistry which transports us to the early beginnings of Music.
