Review Text

  • By Jorma Koskinen on 8 May 2009

    Robert Tear is one of the most gifted and versatile British tenors. He tells an unusually intimate story in the form of a diary of his path as a singer and an evolving human being. Not only do we get interesting information, inside views and anecdotes on the everyday life of a performing artist but alongside the story of preparation and rehersal there goes an underlying story of a man who wants to know what life is about and what his place in the general scheme of things is. Illustrated by his own drawings and bordering on the esoteric Tear (pronounced as in 'tear here', not as in a 'tear drop') relates to us his inner story, his history as a man who eventually was able to see. This is a most remarkable book by an artist with a fascinating variety of interests.

    The book starts reasonably with brief details of his formative years and comparisons of types of singers (he is contemptuous of the super-successful). but by chapter six it rather slips into self-indulgence. I had hoped for insights into an established singer's life but there were few and the book is disappointingly short on anecdote. In a book as short as this, 162 pages, there is no room for dull excursions. There are good bits though: his late night encounter with Mozart is one, the last few pages another, and I likedhis drawings.
