Tenors Define New Music Genre - Neo-Classical, Nov. 6 2012
When the Tenors (formerly the Canadian Tenors) joined David Foster's new Verve Records, the release of this, their second studio album was much delayed but boy oh boy was it worth it! The production value is outstanding with a solo violin on the opening bars of "Amazing Grace" that'll have you weeping like a baby even before the vocals begin. With this release the evolution of the Tenors musical style continues to move far beyond the standard tenor group repertoire. Tracks range from covers of pop classics like "Forever Young" and "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" to a truly jaw-dropping Nessun Dorma arranged for four voices. But the standout tracks may be those composed or co-written by the Tenors themselves including my favorite "World Stand Still".
These great new melodies are arranged and delivered with a classical sensibility and vocal integrity that begs for a new genre label - Neo-Classical.
I highly recommend it as a stocking stuffer for the classical music fan on your holiday gift list, because take it from me I, I love you but I don't need yet another compilation disc of Mozart's or Opera's greatest hits, I really don't!
