Patrick Mason Reviewed in Opera News
August 29, 2011
Professor of Voice and Baritone Patrick Mason was featured on Bridge Records recent release MUSTO: Bastianello and BOLCOM: Lucrezia. The recording was reviewed in the August 2011 issue of Opera News:
Matt Boehler’s stiff and gruff baritone is shown up by the musically and dramatically imaginative Patrick Mason, who finds a variety of vocal shadings and accents for his four characters. Mason’s aria to the moon, with piano ostinatos and a shimmery filigree of trills in the opera’s loveliest scene, is beautifully detailed and deeply felt.
Mason provides another star turn as the duped husband, Ignacio.
