Stuart Skelton, West Australian Symphony Orchestra, Asher Fisch - Shining Knight: Songs and arias by Wagner, Griffes and Barber (CD ALBUM)

One of the world's leading Wagnerians releases his debut solo recording.

Stuart Skeltonhas long been acclaimed as one of the greatest heldentenors of his generation, receiving extraordinary reviews for his performances in some of opera's most demanding roles. His incredible voice and outstanding musicianship have seen him perform all over the world, from the Sydney Opera House to New York's Metropolitan Opera, and from the English National Opera to Milan's legendary La Scala.

Shining Knight features arias from many of the roles that have become synonymous with Stuart Skelton –Parsifal, Lohengrin, Siegmund–as well as Lieder and songs from outside the operatic repertoire.

The disc begins with one of Wagner's earliest works, Rienzi, and traces the composer's development as he invents a new musical language in his Ringcycle, his great operas Parsifal and Tristan und Isolde, and then to the WesendonckLiederthat foreshadows so much of his later work. Skelton then turns to America, and two composers from the generation inspired by Wagner: Charles Griffesand Samuel Barber.

Accompanied here by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra conducted byhis friend and frequent collaborator Asher Fisch, Shining Knightshowcases one of the world's greatest voices at the very peak its powers.
