“Ars longa, vita brevis est’, ‘Life is short, but art is eternal’. Days of glory slip into the past, taking with them those who bestowed upon us the chance to discover beauty and wonder. We are left with indelible impressions, reminiscences of lives dedicated to the Art.
Some time in the past, namely in the second half of the 20th century, two bright stars blazed on the world opera scene — Tamara Milashkina and Vladimir Atlantov.
This brilliant and successful collaboration between two great singers has brought an enormous number masterly performed music chefs-d’oeuvres, model references of impeccable taste and skill, enhanced by their musical upbringing, talent and hard work.
