Three questions to Michał Prószyński:
A composer: Sergey Rachmaninov.
What was your calling to become a singer? When I was still studying at music school in Zyrardow/Poland, there was a concert by my first singing professor. He sang Dichterliebe and I liked this energy, this voice and especially the shades of colour of the notes so much that I went to him after the concert and asked: “What do I have to do to become a tenor?” He simply replied: “You have to be born a tenor”. Since then, I just wanted to sing.
To be a singer – in three words: talent, practice, luck.
