Counter-tenor Brian Asawa's "Vocalise" is a collection of lush, romantic vocalises and love songs by Rachmaninov, Medtner, Faure and Villa-Lobos. Asawa performs here with Neville Marriner and the ASMF. The San Francisco Examiner commented: "This is the countertenor the early music movement has been waiting for."
