Nicholas Phan

Described by the Boston Globe as “one of the world’s most remarkable singers,” American tenor Nicholas Phan is increasingly recognized as an artist of distinction. Praised for his keen intelligence, captivating stage presence and natural musicianship, he performs regularly with the world’s leading orchestras and opera companies. An avid recitalist, in 2010 he co-founded the Collaborative Arts Institute of Chicago (CAIC) to promote art song and vocal chamber music, where he serves as artistic director.

“… Jongen’s very personal and original music, without the slightest imitation, is always superbly composed, attractive and entertaining. Ilic plays the 13 Préludes, Op. 69, with evocative titles such as ‘Fear,’ ‘Nostalgia,’ ‘Tenderness,’ ‘Black Butterflies’ and ‘To Dance,’ very poetically and with an often touching warmth…. Ivan Ilic’s nuanced playing is ravishing in this cycle as well.[ 24 ‘Petits Préludes dans tous les tons’].” *****

“… With this already 27th recording in the series, the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra and its conductor Johannes Klumpp continue to show through the Sturm und Drang works of Haydn. Their approach is in keeping with this, in which they tread this path together full of verve and dynamism. They succeed in teasing out facets and details from the early works. They do justice to the dynamics of the fast movements with fresh access as well as to the rhetorically formulated slow passages. The stormy and urgent playing is particularly well suited to these works.” ****

“… all the pieces use a modern tonal language and yet are of such an appealing nature that listening is  … The violinist Clarissa Bevilacqua knows very well how to bring out this light and descriptive character with elegant playing and nimble technique. She gives each movement its own character, making this collection a small gallery. For the Violin Concerto, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conductor Vimbayi Kaziboni offer their delicately subtle support. With deliberate focus, they reveal aspects of the percussive elements as well, for example, setting painterly points of light.” ****
