Sir Bryn Terfel by Mitch Jenkins / DG, Natalia Katyukova by Kristin Hoebermann
Whether he is singing a dramatic aria or exploring the nuances of a song, Sir Bryn Terfel “can roar—with pain, with pleasure, with fierce indignation, filling the hall with full, strong tone, [and] “can also coo and purr at an extreme pianissimo, making a sound that stays audible only because there is so much in it to feel, as well as to hear” (The New York Times). The beloved Welsh bass-baritone returns to Carnegie Hall for one of the season’s most electrifying recitals.
