About

Global star tenor Piotr Beczala presents Vincerò!, the first fruit of his exclusive collaboration with Pentatone. Vincerò! is a collection of heart-wrenching opera arias by Puccini, Mascagni, Leoncavallo, Giordano and Cilea. For Beczala, this recording documents his vocal transition from the lyrical tenor repertoire to the more dramatic roles of Verismo, and thus simultaneously marks a significant new chapter in his stage career. Beczala is accompanied by the Cor de la Generalitat Valenciana and the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana, led by maestro Marco Boemi, an extraordinary singer’s conductor who has worked with the greatest vocalists of our age.

Reviews

Just listen to the luminous ring to Beczała's tenor in the open-hearted ‘Recondita armonia’ (minus the Sacristan) that opens his disc, which is entitled ‘Vincerò!’. His voice sounds crisp and supple and there’s a definite smile in there too… In an age where there are no longer that many studio recordings of complete operas, there’s perhaps more of a need for operatic recital discs like this; an opportunity for singers to document their artistry or to set out their stall for roles to come.  Mark Pullinger (Recording of the Month)
Gramophone June 2020
[Beczala] phrases Calaf’s Nessun Dorma aristocratically, and his voice, at 53, still sounds youthful for lieutenant Pinkerton’s farewell to Madame Butterfly and Rinnucio’s paean to Florence.
