Winner of the Lieder Prize at the 1997 Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, Christopher Maltman has gone on to record definitive versions of Faure, Schubert, Schumann and a number of British composers. He seems to revel in singing barihunk roles, including Billy Budd, Dead Man Walking, Rape of Lucretia and Therese Raquin. For sheer pleasure watch his DVD of Giulio Cesare with Daniele de Niese. You can also see him in an amazing performance of John Adams' "Death of Klinghoffer."
