Notes & Reviews:

For his third AVIE album, tenor Nicholas Phan turns to a group of Renaissance and Baroque English composers who greatly influenced Benjamin Britten, the muse of his acclaimed recordings Still Falls the Rain (AVR 2258) and Winter Words (AVR 2238), his solo debut recording that topped the Best Classical Recordings lists of NPR, The New Yorker, and The New York Times.

Time Out New York
A stylish young tenor for whom great things lie ahead.
