Notes & Reviews:

Emerging American tenor and Missouri native Michael Spyres, completed his studies at the Vienna Conservatory, and is already known to European audiences having appeared in Milan's La Scala and Deutsche Oper Berlin, working with conductors Muti and Gardner. His debut album A Fool for Love is a collection of well-known arias ranging from Mozart to Stravinsky. A fresh, young tenor with a brilliant future: one of tomorrow's likely vocal superstars.

Opera News
For his debut recital CD, tenor Michael Spyres presents A Fool for Love, a romance scenario on which he threads thirteen opera arias, plus encore. The singing of this young American is so engaging... a singer with artistic vision and a supportive record company is enough of a rarity to warrant attention, and the commanding and sensitive conductor Constantine Orbelian provides a further gold stamp of approval.
