Bryn Terfel

The Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, CBE (born November 9, 1965) is one of the best-known contemporary opera and concert singers. The bass-baritone is much admired for both the quality of his singing as his charismatic stage presence. Initially, Terfel was associated with the roles of Mozart, particularly Leporello, but he has expanded his repertoire to include heavier roles, including Wagner.

Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45

Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45


Ein Deutsches Requiem was Brahm’s first work to bring together a mixed choir, soloists and a large-scale orchestra

Ein Deutsches Requiem differs from all previous works of this genre in both, form and content. He creates therequiem more like a sermon then a mass for the dead. It puts words of consolation at the start and end: theblessing of the suffering and the blessing of the dead.

This is an extraordinary performance of Ein Deutsches Requiem by the Berliner Philharmoniker under the baton of Claudio Abbado, recorded to mark the centenary of Johannes Brahms death in the Grand Hall of the Musikvereinin Vienna in 1997.

Soprano Barbara Bonney (member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music and a Visiting Professor at London'sRoyal Academy of Music) and baritone Bryn Terfel (in 2013 Terfel won the "Best Opera Recording" GrammyAward) with the well-acclaimed Swedish Radio Choir and the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir.

Lovingly restored, up-scaled and digitally remastered including intensive and high-quality audio and visual restoration.

“Terfel is twice the Wotan he seemed at Covent Garden, displaying commanding tone and rough-hewn sensitivity. Deborah Voigt's Brunnhilde is attractively lyrical...Jonas Kaufmann and Eva-Maria Westbroek are superb Volsungs, in need of livelier direction.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2013 ****

Puccini: Tosca

Puccini: Tosca


Angela Gheorghiu (Tosca), Jonas Kaufmann (Cavaradossi), Bryn Terfel (Scarpia), Lukas Jakobski (Angelotti), Jeremy White (Sacristan), Hubert Francis (Spoletta), ZhengZhong Zhou (Sciarrone)

Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Sir Antonio Pappano, Jonathan Kent (director)

It is no exaggeration to say that the two performances of Tosca at the Royal Opera House in July 2011 - with Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann and Bryn Terfel as the leads - were opera history in the making and by far the hottest tickets in town.

For the majority of us who weren’t lucky enough to be there, it has been captured on this DVD, exclusively released by EMI.

Subtitles in Italian, English, German, Japanese, French & Spanish

“Gheorghiu makes a credible character out of Tosca...her voice keeps its beauty at all but the most high-pressure moments...Kaufmann scores a complete success as Cavaradossi...What he lacks in Italianate open tone, he makes up in brooding, dark colours...Neither of them would be likely to get the better of Bryn Terfel's bully of a Scarpia...The other dominant personality is Antonio Pappano, whose Puccini has never sounded better” Gramophone Magazine, January 2013

“Pappano's mastery of Puccinian pace and phrasing intensifies this turbulent score's onward surge, but he's also noticeable attentive to his singers...[Kaufmann's] cries of 'Vittoria!' are thrilling...and his acting never slackens...Tosca's mercurial character seems to resonate with [Gheorghiu] naturally...There are some decent Toscas on DVD already, but I'd start here.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2013 *****

“Jonas Kaufmann as Cavaradossi sings perhaps one of his greatest roles: E lucevan le stelle is unbelievably moving, and his cry of "Vittoria! Vittoria!" is guaranteed to make your hair stand on end! Angela Gheorghiu is a passionate Tosca, and Bryn Terfel unctuously oozes sleaze in a chilling portrayal of Scarpia.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, July 2014

Gounod: Faust

Gounod: Faust

Live from the Royal Opera House


Angela Gheorghiu (Marguerite), Roberto Alagna (Faust), Bryn Terfel (Méphistophélès), Simon Keenlyside (Valentin) & Sophie Koch (Siébel)

Orchestra & Chorus of the Royal Opera House, Antonio Pappano (conductor) & David McVicar (director)

David McVicar's spectacular 2004 production of Gounod’s Faust, featuring a divine cast of opera’s superstars: Roberto Alagna, Angela Gheorghiu, Bryn Terfel, Simon Keenlyside and Sophie Koch.

McVicar is one of the most innovative and in-demand directors, and his lush, haunting realised vision of Faust received glorious praise. The production revels in a gothic, seamy Second French Empire setting, with the Act V ballet “haunting the imagination long after” (The Independent).

“This is opera at its grandest and best” The Wall Street Journal

“Alagna depicts Faust's transition from Gounod-like ancient to cartwheeling young boulevardier and drug-addled Baudelairean decadent with energy and elegant phrasing...[Terfel] suggests the constant predatory menace beneath the musketeer panache with a curious dignity...[Pappano's] theatrical vigour banishes any trace of Gallic langour, a thoroughly un-fustian Faust.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2011 *****

“surely one of the finest achievements of DVD so far...Alagna dominates vocally in the name-role with a powerful heady lyricism...Gheorghiu sings gloriously as a delightful Marguerite, but the action is underlined by the splendidly bold panache of Bryn Terfel's Mephistopheles” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

Stravinsky: Oedipus Rex

Stravinsky: Oedipus Rex

(+ Documentary)


(First release on DVD)

“Oedipus Rex was conceived as an opera without drama or movement, in which the narrator gives the game away before the events are depicted on stage. Undaunted, Julie Taymor flings everything at it: archetypes from Japanese cinema, aboriginal performance traditions, ballet, puppetry and mask theatre. This celebrated 1992 production ought to look cluttered yet it works... While it's possible to imagine more driven conducting, the ensemble is well drilled and the cast unbeatable.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2005
