Album information

Described by Gramophone Magazine as "one of the best of our younger baritones" William Berger makes his Linn debut with a programme of arias from some of the finest operatic composers.

Soprano Carolyn Sampson guest stars on several duets whilst the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, which has won several awards for its performances of Mozart, provides sterling support throughout.  Following a 2012 performance by Berger, the SCO and McGegan, The Herald commented that Cimarosa's 1792 cantata Il Maestro di Capello would be "a highlight of [the] upcoming Linn disc this team is making."

The programme encompasses arias from all of Haydn and Mozart's best-loved operas; Berger's stage portrayal of Papageno was praised by The Arts Desk: "Berger is also a deft, musicianly baritone, and a communicator who has the audience eating out of his hand."

Berger's debut album was chosen by The Guardian critics as one of the ‘Best Classical Albums of 2012' and by David Mellor as his ‘Album of the Week' on Classic FM.
