Vincerò! is Gramophone's Recording of the Month



"Beczała sings this delightful selection of arias with an engagingly openhearted spirit of humanity and drama, and most importantly a beautifully weighted, richly coloured voice."

 

"Vincerò!", performed by star tenor Piotr Beczala with the Cor de la Generalitat Valenciana and the  Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana, led by maestro Marco Boemi, is Gramophone's Recording of the Month - June 2020! Read a glimpse of the article below!

 

"Beczała has taken his time moving into this repertoire – he was 52 when he sang that first Cavaradossi – and in the booklet introduction he writes that his long experience singing lyric roles has meant he is now able to approach verismo ‘with my own style and expression’. In an age when many singers are persuaded to take on heavier repertoire far too soon, it’s refreshing to read of an artist armed with patience. And it’s refreshing to hear a tenor tackle this repertoire with such apparent ease, for this is a simply wonderful disc, sensitively supported by conductor Marco Boemi and the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana."
