I'm not sure how I stumbled upon this great Baritone as I'm no 'buff', but I do enjoy many classical singers among my many and varied tastes in music, but on doing so, I immediately came to Amazon to listen to the samples to this album, and it was instantly clear to me that I'd stumbled upon the greatest Baritone ever! His voice simply 'oozes' sex - and even in the high notes there is no loss of masculinity or virility - just a much gentler tone - something like a 'caress'; not easy to do if you listen to many singers of this genre.
Many classical CDs I purchase, I will listen to once the day I receive them - and then leave them for awhile, as I really need to be in the mood for such music, but upon receiving this, I listened to it twice in succession! (not too surprising I suppose when I'd been counting the minutes off since placing my order in anticipation of its arrival...)
I do hope that Mr. Kwiecien will treat us at some time in the future to an album in English - his voice is so magnificent, I guess it does not really matter with regards to listening pleasure, but it would be nice to hear the English language from such a thrilling voice, and put to such beautiful music...
One word of advice to the ladies; when listening to this, you will definitely need to put the CD case well out of sight! As wonderful as this man's voice is, you'll certainly be very distracted by that handsome look he gives which says 'I'll show you'! in oh, such a very sexy way... ; - )
In summing up; this is DEFINITELY the guy to put all other such singers in the shade, and the most exciting singer in Opera I've heard to date!
