Il Primo Uomo

In his debut album, Russian alto countertenor Dmitry Egorov chose excerpts from four operas, two by Alessandro Scarlatti, and two by Georg Friedrich Handel.
Egorov has a wonderful breadth control, and sings with brilliant intonation and crystal clear enunciation. He has quite a wide vocal range, but his timbre is not symmetrically bright in all registers. His coloratura technique is truly impeccable, and what is most impressive is his uncanny ability to shape long phrases.
His timbre is more suited to sacred music, with its innate serenity and evenness of tone production.
