The Swedish baritone Peter Mattei has made a formidable reputation for himself performing at the most prestigious opera houses in the world: the Metropolitan, Teatro alla Scala and Covent Garden, to mention but a few. On this, his first and long-awaited disc of arias, he revels in the rich opportunities offered by the baritone literature, performing a selection of his favorite arias and roles. Lovelorn young men and cynical libertines, friends faithful unto death and innocent victims of oppression – all of these are brought to life as one of today’s finest operatic baritones displays his entire range with the eminent support of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and Lawrence Renes on the podium.
Peter Mattei performed at the Metropolitan Opera in Tchaikovsky’s Queen of Spades on March 11, 15, 18, 21 and 26.
