Good debut CD
on June 29, 2005
This CD is a good start for the three young men that comprise the Canadian tenors and they positively exhibit the talent that we have in this great nation of ours.
However, the CD does show much room for improvement for future CDs. In particular, this CD lacks the fine edges that characterize the songs of other classically trained musicians such as Il Divo. Areas such as breathing techniques and diction of foreign language lyrics can be improved to make a more refined product.
After listening to three versions of Nella Fantasia (Il Divo, Amici Forever, and Canadian Tenors), I would have to give the nod to Il Divo. While all three interpretations have their own unique spin on the song, Il Divo's rendition stands above the others in terms of the overall presentation and the details such as phrasing, expression, tonality, and diction.
