    Released just yesterday, thought I'd give a baritone a chance on Apple Music. Turns out to be okay but not that good.



    He is cute, though.

    I like his Schubert recording, and this is on the purchase list.

    Beautifully sung, but maybe a little too much on the contemplative side...

    This probably doesn't really belong here but what the heck. The library got this rather schmaltzy collection so I borrowed it.



    I like the fast jolly songs best, like this which never fails to cheer me up:

    Thought this was much better, which is curious since this is the live recording...

    I am on a Jeannette Sorrell-Apollo's Fire binge.



    The Messiah is interesting but the tenor (ironically called Ian Honeyman) fluctuates between mildly angry and heavily perturbed and unfortunately does not hold up to his dramatic intentions, sometimes unintentionally verging on the buffo. I understand this is a theatricalized reading of the oratorio and who knows how much better it sounded live, but at one point I thought Platée and not Messiah. Sorrell's recent St John Passion also has Nicholas Phan as The Distressed Tenor™ but he handles it much better. Baritone Jeffrey Strauss sounds great, though, handles But who may abide beautifully (Hello, MAuer!)

    This past December Sorrell revived that performance with Karim Sulayman in the tenor role, who is a bliss to listen to. Hopefully they release another recording, or maybe video...

    I actually enjoyed the Prohaska recital more than the DiDonato one - a more interesting programme.

    That DiDonato recital belongs on the not-so-good covers thread.
