I was addressing the manner in which he has interacted with these forums in the past.
In a former life, I conducted orchestras. I sometimes had to work with singers. Singers are truly the most arrogant, selfish, annoying bunch of "musicians" on the planet. Everyone in the orchestra hates them. I say these things with fondness since many of my friends are singers and would laugh at what I just wrote (but it's true).
When a soprano was adamant that she wanted to hold a particular note longer than the composer notated, and I would gently suggest to her that being true to the composers intentions outweighed her wish to show off her voice, I would most likely get a stinging smile, and a note that was held even longer the next time. She did not care, she knew she was right.
Such is the mentality and temperament of an artist. Sometimes they are infuriating. Even worse if they are Italian. Just listen to the beautiful music - it's worthwhile even with all the ancillary baggage.
