As the cover says (in French) "20 artists of genius, 20 exceptional CDs -"Sometimes described as "the new Domingo" - his idol - the musicality of his voice, the tenor of Mexico knows how to play to perfection with humor, poetry and tenderness or even tears related to the misfortunes of the heroes he plays.
After his triumphs alongside Anna Netrebko in the Italian opera, Villazón has also conquered the audience with his vision of Monteverdi and Handel"
Solving gift problems for many, Radio Classique and Deutsche Gramaphon bring us a series of 20 recordings of major classical artists and their most 'emblematic works'. This is a very good choice of recordings to showcase Rolando Villazon's triumphant career to date with everything from Italian and French opera to his wonderful re-enlivening interpretations of the heroes of Monteverdi and Handel.
