Robert Allman

Robert Allman had an amazingly long career and was adored by the public. Sadly, his voice went unrecorded by major studios. Brian Castles-Onion and Desiree Records have assembled for the first time rare and unusual tracks spanning his entire career. The 3 CD set comes in a stunning CD hardcover book format with a 24 page booklet honouring and exploring the career of a Great Australian Voice.

"Robert Allman was the possessor of a most beautiful, powerful and natural voice with a true Italianate ring. He was a true Verdi baritone and his heroic voice was heard in Macbeth and Otello and much Puccini and Wagner. He was arguably the best baritone voice to come out of Australia in the last century."
Richard Bonynge AC CBE
