The famous “Queen of the Night” aria from Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” is known for being one of the most demanding pieces in the musical literature. It remains to day a challenge for many singers from around the world.
Michael Barimo is an American professional whistler with a range of more than three octaves. “His whistling tone has a tight wavering vibrato. His low notes have a robust rumble, and his highs pierce the air like a piccolo.” as the New York Times profiled him in a review. This brilliant performance was given at a private party at Joshua Bell’s home in NYC (you can actually see him snickering in the background) a while ago. I suppose when you get invited to Joshua Bell’s, you’d better come with a spectacular talent.
