Notes & Reviews:
Radiating warmth and energy - a master of seduction, a model of elegance, and a passionate and fearless performer - Mexican-born Rolando Villazón is the very embodiment of the Latin tenor. The four contrasting recitals in this box showcase the sweetness and brilliance of his voice and the sensitivity and power of his artistry: Italian arias, French arias and scenes, a mixed operatic program and a selection of zarzuela, recorded with his mentor Plácido Domingo. Mr. Villazón has firmly established himself as one of the music world's most critically acclaimed and beloved stars and as one of the leading tenors of our day. Heralded as "the most charming of today's divos" (The Times) and "a great singer and brilliant entertainer, at once extremely funny and deeply profound" (Crescendo), Mr. Villazón maintains successful careers as a stage director, novelist and TV personality alongside his on-stage career.
