Editorial Reviews

The remarkable Piotr Beczala has just won a prestigious ECHO Klassik award for Singer of the Year 2014 and at the incredible gala event, he performed Massenet s Pourquoi me réveiller , which will be on his brand new album.

Now, this world-leading tenor makes an awaited return to the studio and records a collection of best-loved operatic arias that lie at the core of his repertoire, all connected to France or Paris (either by French composers, or composed for the city of love, Paris). He is joined on this occasion by the German star soprano Diana Damrau.

Piotr Beczala is praised worldwide for his flawless, elegant delivery, immaculate musicianship and keen interpretive intelligence.

His previous (and debut) album on DG was extremely well received by audience and press worldwide. Diapason d'Or in France, 10 in the Dutch magazine Luister, a glowing review in the Australian limelight: "if, like me, you are a fan of Richard Tauber, or if you just want to hear the best tenor since Nicola Geddai in this repertoire, you really must buy the album."

Now, Piotr Beczala records his first solo operatic album with Deutsche Grammophon. It will contain famous arias from Berlioz, Gounod, Massenet, Verdi and others. A perfectly cultivated and stylish singer, he is currently at the absolute peak of his career and shows deep affinity with the repertoire.

During the course of 2015, Piotr will be performing in Spain, Poland, Austria, USA, France & the UK.
