Music can do much, much more than politics, religion or sport. Where they separate, music unites; music encourages harmony in every respect. – Ramón Vargas
 
 
A reviewer once wrote that his voice was like two elements flowing into each other: the elegance and the technical sovereignty of a ‘Tenore di grazia’ like Alfredo Kraus and the silver core and the ‘tears’ of a Fritz Wunderlich.
 
Having sung more than 40 roles, Ramón Vargas is recognized as one of the leading lyrical tenors of the present. His interpretations of Mozart, Bellini and Donizetti are celebrated throughout the world.
 
In recent years, he has turned to the French repertoire with success: e.g. Werther, Manon, Romèo and La damnation de Faust. He has also devoted himself to Puccini and new Verdi operas such as La Bohème, Un Ballo in maschera, Simone Boccanegra, I due Foscari, La traviata, Rigoletto, Ernani etc. which some of them he presents the first time on this new album!

"... I am very enthusiastic about this recital."

Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare - September/October 2013


"Tenor Ramón Vargas has been a Met stalwart for more than two decades, and he has been so reliable a performer that whole period that it might be easy to over-look just how good he really is. The present CD serves as a bracing reminder. Each of the twelve arias is a demonstration of Vargas’s musicality ... Conductor Riccardo Frizza lends flexible, finely guaged support to Vargas’s singing and draws solid, dark tone from Budapest Symphony Orchestra."

Fred Cohen - Opera News magazine - September 2013
