But enough joking. I am singing. This is all my life.
The public is a part of my real life.
If money was my only motivation, I would organize myself differently.
Let us be clear: I take ten times more money for a concert than for an opera performance.
When facing symphonic orchestras which have played some works five thousands times, you have nothing to do.
I feel at home in an orchestral score.
When I was a young man, I was a baritone, very far from possessing the whole range of the tenor then.
Every three days on average, I am alone on stage, facing the public.
Honestly, if the public still wants to hear me in some works, I have to go down a half step.
The public made me and then encouraged me for many years, and my future even now depends upon it.
This circus games aspect has existed since the beginning of my career.
The voice collects and translates your bad physical health, your emotional worries, your personal troubles.
My strength is my enthusiasm.
It is strange, but nobody is shocked when pop singers make a fortune in the space of two years.
We all have a destiny in accordance with the breadth of our shoulders. My shoulders are broad.
