Juan Diego Flórez - The Tenor
“The sheer technical accomplishment of his singing is astounding, but it’s the way that he finesses this music with the delicacy of a true tenore di grazia that make his performances truly memorable. In the history of Rossini singing on record, these accounts stand comparison with any. If you're still uncertain whether contemporary vocal standards are as high as they were, listen to this.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2007 *****
