Jonathan Tetelman

Arias (CD)

A mix of popular and rare arias by Verdi, Puccini, Giordano, Mascagni, Cilea and more.

With his agile technique, dramatic eloquence and rich palette of vocal colours, Tetelman here inhabits a range of roles from the French and Italian repertoire.

“This album creates a portrait of what I feel represents my path as an artist, combining a few lesser-known works with arias and duets for the romantic tenor voice.” - Jonathan Tetelman

Recorded at the Auditorio Alfredo Kraus with the Orquesta Filarmónica de Gran Canaria and its Chief Conductor, Karel Mark Chichon, this collection shows the strong and powerful voice of the tenor in a selection of popular and rather unknown arias.

Focusing on Italian and French repertoire of a variety of periods and genres, the album is designed to showcase the different colours of his voice. “We chose pieces that make an emotional impact for their gentleness and delicacy on the one hand, and for their heroic and dramatic qualities on the other,” says Jonathan.

Both a starting point and a destination, Arias is an impressive recording which captures the expressive power and radiant tones of Jonathan Tetelman’s voice at this early stage in his career. Listeners will no doubt be eagerly anticipating what comes next, as is the singer himself: “I’m really looking forward to the process that’s just started and feel I’m at the beginning of a really exciting journey.”
