NEW SOLO CD - Mozart arias
Fine, young British tenor... voice has an exciting dramatic ring to it... makes an excellent job of Mozart's demanding concert aria Misero O sogno yet he's just as convincing in gentler fair such as the love struck Ferrando in Cosi fan tutte.... Such vital performances that you get swept along with the singing...
- Andrew McGregor, BBC Radio 3 CD Review
In technical terms,and particularly in his outstandingly idiomatic Italian enunciation, Ovenden proves complete master of his chosen repertory... I have only admiration.
Max Loppert, BBC Music magazine
The fine tenor Jeremy Ovenden, who has sung most of the major Mozart roles all over Europe, sings with an engaging commitment to these joyous creations… a delightful selection.
Ovenden’s attractive, bright tenor… his rhythm, diction and easy flexibility of voice are exemplary.
