'Love's Minstrels' / Philippe Sly, bass-baritone; Michael McMahon, piano

Notes & Reviews:

In 2012, bass-baritone singer Philippe Sly won the First Prize of the prestigious 2012 Concours Musical International de Montréal, as well as the Opus prize for the Concert of the Year - Romantic, Post-Romantic and Impressionist Music.

That same year, he presented his first solo album, the critically acclaimed In Dreams, followed in 2013 by Les amants trahis with soprano Hélène Guilmette. With Love's Minstrels, Philippe Sly leads us in a world with folk accents by interpreting great English songs from early 20th century. Poetry, passion and an exceptional voice!

San Francisco Chronicle
In the ensemble cast of six, the standout performance was the precocious and phenomenally assured company debut of Adler Fellow Philippe Sly as Guglielmo. Adler Fellows don't often get cast at this level, but then again, Adler Fellows this gifted and accomplished are rare indeed. Sly's singing was at once robust and lyrical, with a beautiful range of tonal colors and the ability to combine virility and tenderness in a single phrase. His dramatic approach was charismatic and precisely etched - never more so than in "Donne mie la fate a tanti," his final outburst of wounded pride against the entire female sex.
