About

‘The 5 Countertenors’ draws together five of the world’s most renowned countertenors, who bring the rich world of baroque opera to life.

Described in their heyday as “beyond all creatures upon earth” (William Congreve, 1700), countertenors are once again firmly established on concert platforms, opera stages, the covers of music magazines - and the subjects of heated on-line debate and of fan-pages on social media.

These world-class performers showcase the expressive variety of this unique genre.

This album also celebrates the individuality of each singer’s voice and in turn the art of the countertenor. 

The tenors are accompanied by the brilliant, ECHO-Klassik winning baroque group, Armonia Atenea, under George Petrou.
