Alexander Püvi singsIl trovatore: Di quella pira
From 1941 to 1944, he fought for the Red Army against Nazi Germany. He studied voice only after the war (with Aleksander Arder at the Tallinn conservatory), and got a late start as a singer: he was at the Tallinn opera from 1956 to 1971 and again from 1973 to 1977; the two years in between were spent as a soloist with the Estonian Philharmonic. Among his most importants parts were Otello, Radames, Manrico, Canio, Don José, Cavaradossi, and Herodes.
