I was beginning to have my doubts about Ian Bostridge, having only heard his Schubert and English Songbook, but this dispelled all misgivings about the timbre or strength of this great tenor's voice! Along with an almost ridiculous range, Bostridge has mastered both the soft, lyrical style which seems to be his trademark and a tight, insistent, powerful tone.

I'm not entitled, musically, to give any opinion about his execution of the three composers' works on here, but, after listening to the samples here, I can assure any prospective buyer (like myself) that this is a most astounding performance of such versatility that my estimation of Bostridge has risen -- as I didn't think was possible.

Ian Bostridge continues to amaze us with his interpretive finesse, his ability to create moods and atmospheres in the music of composers from many schools, and in his extraordinary range and timbre of his 'tenor' voice.

This collection of works for voice and piano (and here Julius Drake is the distinctive collaborator - a fine pianist!) is from the French school. The works of Debussy and Poulenc are quintessentially French in sound and execution: when the tempi are brisk, Bostridge and Drake are crystalline and when the tempi are slow, they produce languid, dreamy, seamless tone.

The works of Faure include works for tenor and chamber ensemble and here the Belcea Quartet with Leon Bosch provide that floating though solidly formed tone that we so often associate with French orchestral works.

In all, this is a recital that is rich in content, dramatic in execution, and simply gorgeous singing from Ian Bostridge. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, March 05

Just okay. Not as impressed with him in the French repertoire as in other things.
