ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In his debut solo album, Canadian countertenor Michael Taylor explores the portrayal of sleep, death and madness in baroque opera. Featuring arias from Handel's Orlando, Giulio Cesare and Tolomeo as well as works by Vivaldi and Graun, Michael is accompanied by "The Dansant", a baroque ensemble consisting of some of Canada's most talented young musicians performing on period instruments. Michael has garnered praise across Europe and North America for performances of leading roles in operas from the baroque period to the modern era, and is also highly sought-after in concert and oratorio, having performed his Lincoln Center debut with the Grammy-nominated Trinity Choir and Baroque Orchestra as a soloist in Handel's Messiah.

Praise for countertenor Michael Taylor:

- "vocally outstanding" (Opernwelt 2013)
- “a riveting performance... with vocal radiance and great emotion” (Nordkurier 2012)
- “great virtuosity and moving stage presence” (Passauer Neue Presse 2012)
