Vocalist - Baritone, Symphony Pops
About
The dynamic American baritone Stephen Powell brings his "rich, lyric baritone, commanding presence, and thoughtful musicianship" (Wall Street Journal) to a wide range of music, from Monteverdi and Handel through Verdi and Puccini to Sondheim and John Adams. Opera magazine has hailed him, writing "the big news was Stephen Powell's gorgeously-sung Onegin: rock solid, with creamy legato from top to bottom and dynamics smoothly tapered but never exaggerated."

"I never thought I'd find myself wanting to review a recording of Orff's Carmina Burana, but this one with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra caught my ear and is so superb—so lively, accurate, cleanly recorded, and handsomely played—that its action-movie, apocalyptic aspects are matched by its introspective moments."
