NEW SOLO CD - Mozart arias
|Fine, young British
tenor... voice has an exciting
dramatic ring to it... makes an excellent job of Mozart's demanding
concert aria Misero O sogno
yet he's just as convincing in gentler fair
such as the love struck Ferrando in Cosi

performances that you get swept along with the singing...

I have only admiration.
