The Swedish baritone has died at the age of 80. He was a notable Eugene Onegin, Don Giovanni, Simon Boccanegra, Rigoletto and, in Puccini's Tosca, Scarpia. He recorded the latter role with Sir Colin Davis conducting and with Monserrat Caballé as Tosca and it offers a superb example of Wixell's art and also a stellar assumption of the part. Ingvar Wixell was born on 7 May 1931 and died on 8 October 2011.
