Notes & Reviews:

Thomas Blondelle, who finished second in the prestigious Concours Reine Elisabeth 2011, was chosen by the competition's partner BNP Paribas Fortis to record a song recital and give concerts on tour throughout Belgium and elsewhere. This young tenor has an exceptional vocal range. He is currently a soloist with the Deutsche Oper Berlin, but he also appears at many international venues. Recent engagements include his debut as Froh in a new production of Wagner's Das Rheingold at the Bavarian State Opera (February 2012). With pianist Daniel Blumenthal - the ideal partner for any young singer - he presents a program of humorous French and German art songs. This unusual, witty recital has been put together very intelligently!
