American Record Guide, May/June 2016
He does an excellent job with this ambitious program, handling extreme registers and numerous technical hurdles, bringing out tricky phrasing, and displaying terrific breath control and stamina. Overall this is an impressive performance. The eye-catching cover art was done by award-winning artist Diane Hanson, who is married to Mr Beavers.
