Notes & Reviews:

"There's no question regarding this singer's extraordinary gifts, either in a technical sense or as an interpreter of songs--as I noted previously, he has a capacity, nearly unique among today's lieder singers, "to understand the communicative and emotive heart of a song and how to do the things that personalize it without subtracting from the music or text." He shows why sheer vocal beauty isn't enough in lieder singing--although he certainly offers no small amount of absolutely gorgeous sound!" -Classics Today (10/10)
