Reviews

'Bostridge is in the royal line of Britten's tenor interpreters … heard here in a veritable cornucopia of, by and large, unfamiliar, and even unknown songs … all performed with full understanding and innate beauty … thoughtfully interpreted and beautifully sung … [a] richly satisfying issue' (Gramophone)

'The advent of Ian Bostridge has been one of the most heartening occurrences in British musical life in recent years. Here is a tenor with a wonderful voice and brains and sensitivity to match' (The Sunday Telegraph)

`Here is a tenor who possesses an exceptionally sweet and beautiful voice, and a fine musician and a thinker too … inspired performances' (The Guardian)

'La voz es bella y espressiva … y el apoyo de Graham Johnson es, como siempre, magnifico' (Scherzo, Spain)
