This recording showcases some of the best in young British musical talent, with rising star tenor Andrew Kennedy and Southbank Sinfonia, conducted by Simon Over. Their programme explores three phases of the Classical era, with early arias from Gluck, later classical works by Mozart, and the beginnings of Romanticism with Berlioz.

"This is an impressive album of challenging arias from relative newcomer, tenor Andrew Kennedy." "...his [Kennedy] work on this disc is quite impressive. The repertoire is well-chosen, representing the classical period with GLuck and Mozart and moving through to the beginnings of the ROmantic movement with Berlioz."...Clearly this is a singer to watch, and hs direct approach and vocal earnestness would be welcome in a wide variety of roles. Hopefully he will continue to build his discography..."    *****

BBC Music Magazine - May 2010

"...I give high marks to the intelliegent and ear-pleasing singing on this CD, on which both voice and orchestra are well captured."

John T Hughes

International Record Review - April 2010

"...Kennedy’s bright, firm tenor is equal to the demands of Gluck’s haute-contre parts. He sings "J’ai perdu mon Euridice" beautifully, but the pick is Admeto’s wonderful "Misero! E che faro" from the Italian Alceste. Simon Over and the Southbank Sinfonia are crystal clear accompanists and the overture to Tito is splendid." ...  ***
