“What a great sense of style . . . and incredible control of the voice. But the most impressive thing was that [he] still sound[s] like a man, not a man imitating a woman which is key . . . It's
very impressive what [he does]. Bravo!”

~Gregory Kunde, Metropolitan Opera, La Scala

“His excellent musicianship and interpretative specificity combine with a strong vocal endowment and robust stage presence to generate performances that are presently bringing him to the attention of colleagues who specialize in the performance of Baroque repertoire. His career prospects as an interpreter of this literature lie at the high end.”

~George Shirley, Metropolitan Opera
