Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Jan Peerce was a great singer, universally acclaimed as one of the outstanding artists of his time, a role model of the American Dream. Commencing with Peerce`s roots on the Lower East Side of New York, and traveling"uptown" and around the world with him, we will view his life through music performance, and interviews with famed concert violinist, and host, Isaac Stern. In addition, video and film footage of Jan Peerce, some of which has never been publicly shown, will bring to life his dynamic, entertaining, and witty personality. One hour biography of the life of the famous Metropolitan Opera tenor. Supported by grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.


"This one hour special should be mandatory viewing for students of proper singing. That Jan Peerce sang for over sixty years without damage to his voice is indicative of the thoroughness of his vocal technique. This wonderful film shows Jan Peerce at various stages throughout his career - from the 1940s Toscanini/Peerce film \Hymns of the Nations" through to his very final Carnegie Hall Concert in 1982 at the age of 78 - it is filled with wonderful insights into what drove the man and his music. The film also includes extracts from violinist Isaac Stern's interviews with Jan Peerce, as well as television excerpts from the Edward R. Murrow TV programme and other interviews (including his wife, Alice). I showed it to a class of my vocal students (who hadn't heard of anyone except Pavarotti and Bocelli) and they were simply amazed at how expressive the human voice can be, how well the voice can remain even into the late 70s and just what a great singer Jan Peerce was. " (Harper and Row, NY 1976)
