Notes & Reviews:

A superb new recording from one of the great tenors of our time — with thrilling accounts of arias both well-known and rare.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
For over 20 years, Alvarez has been a likable and useful tenor, bringing an authentic Italianate spinto sound and technique to roles that had been sung in previous decades by Bergonzi, Pavarotti, and Domingo. His timbre is more appropriate for Verdi and Puccini than, say, Jonas Kaufmann's. His legato is exemplary, his words are crisp and clear, and the voice is ringing and juicy.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Studio No. 5, St. Petersburg Radio (04/2014).
