In less than four years and since he signed a contract with Virgin Classics, Rolando Villazón has become one of the most outstanding tenors of his generation. With sales of over 400 000 albums worldwide on Virgin Classics he is one of the label's bestselling artists. Although he has now signed a new contract with DG, his main discography is still on Virgin Classics and his album sales increase steadily through each of his appearances in venues worldwide.
The range of repertoire he has recorded on Virgin Classics offers an impressive sample of his artistry, covering several genres and centuries, from Monteverdi to 19th century French, Italian & Russian opera, and more recently the Spanish zarzuela. The richness of his catalogue on the label calls for a 2CD compilation, as this year will be the first without a new recital.
