Notes and Editorial Reviews
Spectacular rarities from perhaps the most thrilling bel canto tenor of our time, in his first ever aria collection with orchestra. A unique voice that offers even tone and timbre from top to bottom, thrilling and chesty high notes, as well as uncanny flexibility, precision and intonation. Sympathetic and sonorous collaboration from Maestro Constantine Orbelian's Kaunas City Symphony.
'Brownlee...sings his...arias with an ease, purity and polish that could hardly be bettered.' - Seattle Times
