Hi,

Another great review...

http://www.concertonet.com/scripts/review.php?ID_review=6969

Even after I experienced two “knock ‘em dead” performances by Anna Netrebko in the same week (in Don Pasquale and the Richard Tucker Music Foundation Annual Gala), spending an evening with Bryn Terfel in recital felt like nothing less than a stunning demonstration of mass seduction by a born stage animal. While Netrebko wows audiences with her vocal gifts and exuberant personality, she does not establish the personal connection that Terfel does. He has an extraordinary – probably unequalled – ability to reach out and embrace an audience, to establish rapport, and make thousands of people in a huge auditorium feel as if they were in the company of an old and dear friend. Lots of these people were obviously firm fans. Just the expectation had the usually staid Carnegie Hall audience primed for joy. As soon as they caught sight of him striding onto the stage, they broke into vigorous applause, amplified with shouts of welcome. After two hours of charm, stories, smiles, winks, jokes and – oh yes – singing, their enthusiasm had not flagged a bit.
