Notes & Reviews:

Hailed as the "Brando of opera," Uruguayan bass-baritone Erwin Schrott joins Decca with a deliciously charismatic and seductive debut album. Showcasing some of opera's most famous roles, Schrott demonstrates why audiences and critics around the world continue to cheer at every performance. Acclaimed for his portrayals in the operas of Mozart, Schrott is the first choice at the world's greatest opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera (where he will portray Don Giovanni this fall and winter), La Scala, the Royal Opera House, LA Opera, Washington National Opera and many others. Schrott's debut album perfectly showcases his distinctive, chocolaty voice and his wonderful talents for characterization.

Sunday Times
Schrott is suave and honeyed in the serenades from Don Giovanni and Gounod's Faust

The Observer
Half the disc is devoted to Mozart and the three Da Ponte roles that made Schrott's name...But he often fares better in the quieter, more beguiling moments than in full flow - not usually the case on stage...three arias from Berlioz, Gounod and Meyerbeer bring out the dynamic devil in him.

The Times
Schrott knows how to change his voice's colour, phrase by phrase, sometimes word by word, especially if the word is "Susanna". As Figaro in the Mozart selections he's attractively light and dancing; he can also drip with honey (Voici des roses from La Damnation de Faust) and scowl himself black (Meyerbeer's Bertram, bound for Hell). Intimacy comes as easily, too, as the loud address: Philip's monologue from Don Carlos (sung in French) conveys with unusual penetration the sense of someone thinking out loud, quiet and fearful.
