'James Radomsik's new biography brings vividly to life the theatre world of Madrid, Paris and London in the early years of the 19th Century... the intricacies and intriques of Spanish cultural politics... make for fascinating reading, as Radomski supplies page after page of unpublished documents.' - Carlos Maria Solare, OperaThis is the first comprehensive biography of one of opera history's most important personalities. Renowned Spanish tenor, successful singing teacher, prolific composer, and significant popularizer of Rossini and Mozart roles, García was an influential figure in the international operatic scene of his time. García's life is chronicled from his earliest operatic role years in Seville until his death in Paris in 1832, with substantial reference to previously undiscovered reviews and letters.
