Biography

JOSEPH CALLEJA – THE MALTESE TENOR
It was summer 2010, and Joseph Calleja was making his role debut as Gabriele Adorno in Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra. The house was Covent Garden in London, and his co-stars included a certain Plácido Domingo, now singing the baritone title-role.
Joseph Calleja had planned to study the challenging role of Adorno during the previous summer, ... Read more in Amazon's Joseph Calleja Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Another glorious offering from Calleja 11 Sep 2012
By Trev-R TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
NOTE : - This is exactly the same review as I wrote for 'Tenor Arias' as IMHO it is difficult to say anything negative about this outstanding Tenor:-

"I came to Joseph Calleja through his Maltese Tenor album which I enjoyed very much. It was not until his newest album in tribute to Mario Lanza, that I came back to listen to him again. At the time of this recording his voice was already of such a high standard and an indication of the great things to come (provided he looks after his voice)

Perhaps you recently saw him on the last night of the Proms and are looking for a good album of Calleja's to listen to. You will not be disappointed with this one although I would recommend buying all of his current albums as they all offer an insight into a Tenor who not only compares with the best of today's offerings but also reminds me of the greats of the past, Del Monaco in particular.

A great singer with a tremendous talent and a personality to match. I believe he has the potential to be the greatest singer of his generation. Kaufmann is my current favourite but Calleja is so very close and of course Calleja is about 9 or 10 years younger than Kaufmann."

4.0 out of 5 stars Joseph Calleja - indeed a golden voice 27 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
I like his voice very much.Unstrained and beautiful singing. Reminds me of the best older bel canto style. He sings "Au mont ida" in French almost as well as Jussi Bjorling's famous version in Swedish ! May he preserve his God-given talent and not ruin it with roles that are too heavy. I look forward to more CDs from him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up album 7 May 2006
By Ian
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having heard Joseph Calleja's first offering, Tenor Arias, and then seen him live at St John's, Smith Square I was eagerly awaiting album no. 2. Well here it is - and it's a great listen. There aren't the fireworks that you get with Florez - it's a completely different voice and style of singing but it's great stuff nonetheless. Joe injects real emotion into his delivery and this works very well on the duets he sings with the girls - Anna Netrebko, Tatiana Lisnic.

This album is titled the Golden Voice and it's an appropriate choice of wording - the voice is golden, rich and powerful - not to be missed. Fabulous.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Voice of Joseph Calleja 19 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This disc was purchased for my husband. He is a fanatic where tenors are concerned. His most admired tenor is Jussi Bjorling who tragically died in 1960 at the tender age of 49 (three weeks before our wedding).

Joseph Calleja is a very close likeness to Jussi and needless to say my husband was very pleased with this disc. I hope to acquire as many discs as possible in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly golden voice 17 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Joseph Calleja's first album is a rare treat. His clear melodic voice has the makings of a truly great tenor, if it is nurtured in the early stages of his career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not enough room, here, to describe how this guy's voice touches me...
The warmth of Domingo, the plaintiveness of Caruso. I don't know what else I can say. Even when Calleja sings something relatively optimistic and joyful, he can still bring tears... Read more
