CD Reviews

Excellent Quality!
S. Sommerville | Raleigh, NC | 05/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll be honest with you, I listen to opera about twice a month, but when I do- it's usually this one.
Thomas Quasthoff has excellent range and injects a truckload of emotion into his singing. The arrangements are beautiful, the recording quality is excellent as well. If you're like me and are not an expert on opera, but just want to listen to something enjoyable, then I reccomend this one to you, my friend."
A remarkable CD
S. Sturdivant | 12/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is possibly the best and most listened to CD that I own. Quasthoff's artistry is unmatched by any performer I have yet to hear, and his technique is wonderful. I have seen him in concert, and I can say that this recording does do him justice. I especially like his recordings of the arias from Handle's 'Messiah' and the last track from Bach's 'St. Matthew Passion.'"
