Bryn Ter­fel is, by his own ad­mis­sion, now be­gin­ning to move away from the Mozart roles as­so­ci­ated with him in the past and onto the great Wag­ne­r­ian parts, which he plans to fo­cus on in the next phase of his ca­reer. This recital, con­ceived as a trib­ute to the com­poser in his an­niver­sary year, is also some­thing of a farewell to this reper­toire as it in­cludes arias he has sung on stage and some from roles that are new to him. The pro­gramme shows how ap­pro­pri­ate Ter­tel’s fine bass bari­tone voice is for th­ese arias and how his sub­tle dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion brings the dis­parate char­ac­ters cre­ated by Mozart and his li­bret­tists to life in vo­cal terms. This is Mozart singing of the high­est qual­ity and in­ter­pre­ta­tive sen­si­tiv­ity from both Ter­fel and his sup­port­ing singers. www.deutschegram­
