Heard recently as the Royal Opera’s Germont, Pirgu is an exciting new talent who shines in every item on this intelligently-planned recital disc. Heroic characterisation is as apt as lyrical, and his firm, flexible tenor works well in the studio. While the core of the disc is Italian (mostly Verdi, well- chosen), his French (Gounod and Massenet) and German (Strauss) also impress. Flexible, idiomatic support from the excellent orchestra and dynamic, rising young conductor.
