Munteanu studied at Berlin, then at Milan. He sang "light" roles such as Ernesto in Don Pasquale (there is a recording with Molinari-Pradelli conducting available), Almaviva, Faust, Alfredo, Werther, Don Ottavio, the Duke and so on. He was also a great lied singer. After his retirement, he became professor at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan.
I wish to thank Vladimir Efimenko for the picture.
I would like to thank Dragos Tomescu for the recordings.
