ESTHER SALAMAN, A GREAT MEZZO SOPRANO AND A LIFE-LONG SINGING TEACHER ESTHER SALAMAN, A GREAT MEZZO SOPRANO AND A LIFE-LONG SINGING TEACHER

By Dr. Michael Smith
About the Author
 

" Some years ago, just for the joy of it,  I went to the late and great Esther Salaman for singing lessons. Esther, after a fulfilled and long life, died in 2005.  She was a great mezzo soprano but was also a much-sought-after and life-long singing teacher.     Peter Hamburger, her son, kindly invited my wife and I on Sunday 11th February to an afternoon `concert'  held in Esther's  honour at the Royal Academy of Music.  He presented and co-ordinated a carefully planned program of, as we were to discover, so much national and international talent.  The soprano Rona Israel-Kollat had flown in especially from Tel Aviv.

The main concert hall was packed. Esther had touched so many peoples' lives both within music and Judaism but also  widely without.   Among the brilliant and well-known singers and actors  who performed, life-long friends talked about the up-lifting effect she, personally, had  had upon their lives. There were `names'  performing known to all of us, like Maureen Lipmann. And the senior Baron Cohen's, spoke warmly about their friend Esther. Their son Sasha `Borat' Baron Cohen  was in the audience.  And there can be few who have a tenor voice like Ian Bostridge.

The memories of Esther, the singing, and other presentations were genuine emotion raisers. The afternoon was - and I can't think of a better word - Glorious.

As it came to the end with  the  memorial prayer, Eil Meleh Rachaminn, from Rabbi Thomas Salaman,  the memorial chorus Va Pensiero from Verdi's `Nabucco' was sung.  It started on the stage and built up to a crescendo as   several pre-determined and  trained voices in the audience stood up, one after the other, turning up the volume as it were.  It was amazing as the whole afternoon had been.   Peter Hamburger got a standing ovation. He well deserved it.  But I know he won't mind my saying that the standing ovation was also being shared with and for  Esther who I believe I could see standing there with him and smiling her smile.

The applause continued on and on as the tears ran down my cheeks.   Thank you Peter and Esther. I haven't enjoyed a Sunday afternoon so much for as long as I can remember. "
