Haydn’s Creation / Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival

Lawrence A. Johnson

Chicago Classical Review

Polenzani–also a Richard Tucker winner–showed why he is the finest Mozart tenor of our day, singing Haydn’s arias with vibrant liquid tone and the lyric sensitivity of a lieder singer."

“Polenzani was stylish and sang with heart-felt enthusiasm, tempered with a sound that was shimmering yet always collected. His interpretations were sensitive and his shaping of the text was splendid.”
