Description

Brian Asawa: The Complete RCA Recordings (5 CD)
Release Date: April 28, 2017
Number of Discs: 5

The American Brian Asawa, who died tragically young in 2016, became one of the worlds foremost countertenors before he was 30, acclaimed for the exceptional size, richness, agility and beauty of his voice.

In 1991 he was the first countertenor ever to win the Metropolitan Opera Auditions and soon he was singing with opera companies all over the world. He was also a gifted recitalist and made a notable series of recordings for RCA/BMG.

All reissued here, they range from Elizabethan Lute Songs to a disc of songs by Ned Rorem and include excerpts from the complete recording of Handels opera Serse conducted by Nicholas McGegan, in which BBC Magazine singled out for praise Brian Asawas luscious legato in the role of Arsamene.
