Edwin Crossley-Mercer song recital set for release

Edwin Crossley-Mercer
We posted about Michael Linton's 17-movement song cycle Carmina Catulli late last year featuring barihunk Edwin Crossley-Mercer. The performance was at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall and was taped for future release. That performance will now be available on CD and at Digital Stores on August 19th. You can watch a trailer below.

If you want to catch Crossley-Mercey live, on August 10th, he'll be performing a song recital with accompanist Fernando Pérez at the Sala Verdi in Montevideo, Uruguay. From October 13-21 he reprises his huge success as Pollux in Rameau's Castor et Pollux at the Théâtre des Champs Élysées in Paris. Tickets and additional cast information are available online.

  1. A fine insight into that which is overlooked or which escapes the listener or the spectator often, not all of them fortunately: composing, playing and singing require injecting emotion, that is all the sentiments that can be gathered together, into the "ensemble" and consequently makes "music that matters", to use Mr Linton's phrase on his Refinersfire site. Composers and artists are not jack-o'-the-clock people. This recording of Catullus' poetry is an illustration of great aesthesia.
