Piotr Beczala is among my favorite tenors but here his voice sounds too much forced and, sometimes, the effort to sustain the notes makes the listening tiring. The real diamond in this CD is the scene between Manrico and Azucena, where Ewa Podles shows what a real artist can make from a well known character. I hope Beczala reconsiders on his singing and wait a little longer before taking roles to heavy for his lyrical voice.
