Lawrence Brownlee: This heart that flutters (Rosenblatt Recitals)

"... one of the world’s leading bel canto tenors is Lawrence Brownlee. He has a smooth vocal style with a gleaming top. His new album, “This Heart that Flutters,” with pianist Iain Burnside, contains pieces from both live concerts and studio recordings. It’s been a long wait for another star African-American tenor since the time of George Shirley but Brownlee has the talent, both as an opera singer and as a recitalist." (Epoch Times)
