Michael Fabiano will begin a partnership with the Pentatone label with a disc of Verdi and Donizetti arias.

The American tenor, who has signed what is described as a ‘long-term, exclusive deal’ with the Dutch label, has been gracing some of the world’s leading stages - including Covent Garden and the New York Met - in recent years, building on the success of having been, in 2014, awarded both the prestigious Beverly Sills Artist Award and Richard Tucker Awards, two prizes given to exceptionally promising young artists. 

The tenor featured in Gramophone’s One to Watch column in 2011, though since then his name has appeared in our pages primarily in DVD reviews (Donizetti’s Lucretia Borgia with Renée Fleming on Euroarts, and the composer's Poliuto on Opus Arte) or in sections devoted to live music-making. The deal with Pentatone, which promises to ‘showcase the breadth of his repertoire over several albums’, should change that. He’ll be joined for his initial aria album by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Enrique Mazzola.
