Triumphant debuts in Bremen and Brussels usher in Rolando’s 12/13 season

Rolando’s debut concerts at Musikfest Bremen and KlaraFestival Brussels have been a resounding success. Audiences in both cities greeted Rolando and the Kammerorchester Basel with standing ovations after their Mozart themed-programs, which included concert arias for tenor and symphonic works by Mozart and Boccherini.  Critics praised Rolando’s “wit, stage presence and incredible charm” and “suggestive expression and passionate emotion” combined with his “bronze-coloured timbre, virile tenor and beautifully executed coloratura.”

On October 14, Rolando will host the 2012 ECHO Klassik Award ceremony before making his return to the United States for performances of Verdi’s Requiem with the Philadelphia Orchestra led by Yannick-Nézet-Séguin.
