Resonus is proud to welcome internationally celebrated artists Nicky Spence (tenor) and Malcolm Martineau (piano) with a recital album consisting of a musical journey of Shakespeare Songs set by a diverse and eclectic range of composers from Purcell and Haydn, through to Britten, Quilter, Tippett and John Dankworth, via Chausson and Schubert.
 
Entitled As You Like It: Shakespeare Songs, the album shows the supreme versatility of Spence’s voice and abilities from Romantic lieder to jazz-inspired works, all superbly accompanied by the universally acclaimed pianist Malcolm Martineau.
 
Also included on the album is the world premiere recording of Three Tempestuous Tunes by young composer Alex Woolf. Born in 1995, andan award-winning composer, Woolf is a principal composer with the National Youth Orchestra and a recipient of the BBC Young Composer Award.
 

 " ...it is a pleasure to find so wide a range of styles in response to the same texts ... Worth investigating and enjoying"

 
Lark Reviews

"[Nicky Spence] has the true singer’s gift of communication, without which these works would just be pretty but dull sounds. Instead - with the help of some superb accompanying from Malcolm Martineau - he brings them alive with joy, pain, love, despair and wit."

 
Sinfini 

"...I can’t think of any collection comparable with this ... There’s a large variety of periods of composition and of moods here ... I enjoyed [Spence’s] performances here, expertly partnered by Malcolm Martineau and well recorded."
 
MusicWeb-International.com

 "Spence’s voice is naturally thrilling, radiant and luminescent in just about every second of this programme, crossing stylistic boundaries with the silvery ease of a born entertainer."   *****

 
The Scotsman 

 "A major presence in this starry company is the young composer Alex Woolf, whose Three Tempestuous Tunes strike out in many musical and dramatic directions in a matter of seconds, allowing the Shakespearean characters of his choice to address the listener with first-person immediacy."
