“All the arias on the disc are on the subject of love and Spyres has linked them thematically, creating a notional narrative through the disc from first rapture to disillusion …
“Throughout, Spyres is well supported by Constantine Orbelian and the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, who accompany sympathetically and do not disappoint in any of the varied repertoire.
“This is a delightful disc, showcasing a highly promising young tenor who shows that he is at home in variety of repertoire. Much of the music on this disc is technically challenging; challenges which Spyres responds to with bravura and style. The way that Spyres makes style count in the heavier roles rather recalls Alfredo Kraus at times. Importantly, Spyres is equally convincing in both the Italian bel canto and the French repertoire. This is certainly a disc I will come back to, and I can recommend it to anyone interested in fine singing.” — Robert Hugill
