Teddy Tahu Rhodes singing career is going from strength to strength.
Hugely popular in New Zealand where he was born, and Australia, where opera aficionados adore him, he is now being sought after by opera companies around the world.
"Ferociously gifted," was how the San Francisco Chronicle described Rhodes when he debuted with San Francisco Opera in the world premiere of Dead Man Walking, "… a voice that boomed forth with easy resonance, Rhodes perfectly embodied the doomed man's combination of arrogance and terror."
This is his first long-awaited solo release, an all-Mozart program of famous arias from his operas, Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, Così fan tutte and Die Zauberflöte.
Also included are orchestral the works Adagio and Fugue in C minor, 6 German Dances and Minuet in C major.
