Notes & Reviews:

Internationally renowned tenor Piotr Beczala celebrates the 200th anniversary of Verdi's birth with a collection of highlights that include the roles in which he has for years been acclaimed on the world's great operatic stages. This new CD with the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra offers rarities and arias that were ground-breaking at the time.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2013
The Polish tenor's move into a heavier repertoire than hitherto associated with him is amply vindicated in this celebratory CD...he retains the golden quality of his voice as he sizes up. The result is singing on a grand scale, impeccable in diction, tone and musicianship.

Opera, August 2013
Both enjoyable and impressive... [Podles] sounds thrillingly elemental, with rich tone, dramatic flair and an almost glutinous relish of the vowel sounds. Beczala has enough metal in his instrument but retains the capacity for elegance.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The Polish tenor Piotr Beczala has become one of the world's leading opera singers in the last few years. He sings regularly at the Met and in many major European houses. In today's opera world, where a singer needs both good looks and a fine voice, Beczala's strong lyric tenor and handsome appearance assure his success.
