"Vincerò!" is Presto Classical's Recording of the Week



"This is an absolute feast of great singing from an artist at the height of his powers."

 

"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 Presto Classical's Album of the Week - May 2020! Read a glimpse of the article below!

 

"Beczała sounds in complete control of every interpretative gesture. There are no awkward register-breaks to disguise, no ‘sobs in the voice’ to camouflage issues with line and breath-control, and not so much as a hint of rawness on the many exposed top notes - these unfurl with thrilling power at the climaxes of arias from Gianni Schicchi, Adriana Lecouvreur and Andrea Chénier, and of course the obligatory 'Nessun dorma', which closes the album in a blaze of glory."
