Thomas Quasthoff - Die Stimme - Autobiographies (The Voice - Autobiography)

(This is is repost from LJ. It is based of the Finnish translation)

Thomas Quasthoff is a German tenor, lied singer and thalidomide victim. There is an official site. Even if he is profiled as a classic music singer, his last record was a jazz album Watch What Happens. Unfortunately, I have never heard him sing myself.

But they still mostly stayed where their ancestors had moved. Hartley himself became a war correspondent and wittnessed number of African conflicts, not only the most famous ones.
