Happy #82 to Placido Domingo and Lecuona’s music

We say happy birthday to Placido Domingo born on this day in Madrid, Spain, in 1941. Domingo made his US debut in Dallas in 1961. I did not know that. He’s been on stage for 50 years: over 3,800 performances of 147 roles, plus many audio and video recordings and films. It’s hard to pick a favorite. I love “Siempre en mi corazon“, his 1983 LP of Ernesto Lecuona songs. It’d make a great gift for Valentine’s Day.
