Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed for his 'extraordinary top notes' (Guardian), Mexican singer Jesus Leon is one of today's most exciting lyric tenors. For his recording debut, he presents a selection of his favorite bel canto arias, uniting three 19th c. giants of Italian opera in a dramatic and expressive program revealing his sweet, light and flexible voice. ''... his light tenor was mellifluous in its phrasing and even in tone.' (Seen & Heard Int'l) {Don Giovanni/Garsington Opera} ''... a voice with a homogeneous color and secure high tessitura... ' (Der Opernfreund) {Maria di Rohan/Radialsystem Theater, Berlin}

BBC Music Magazine, August 2015
There's nothing like a tenor strutting his stuff; and it's all there when the young Mexican Jesus Leon tackles 'Amici miei'...Leon leaps up to that closing trio of top notes with all the swaggering confidence of the young Pavarotti...This is the real stuff.
