Florian Sempey - Rossini: Figaro? Sì! - BBC Music Magazine
A very personal disc devoted entirely to the music of Rossini. The appealingly voiced Sempey has sung Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia in major opera houses throughout Europe and beyond, and his immersion in the role is abundantly clear in the witty, well-characterised rendition of 'Largo al factotum' that opens this recording.
