International BEL CANTO Singing Competition

Here is a little surprise, we decided to add Antonio’s competition entry to the Bel Canto competition to the site. The competition rules are iphone recording only, which doesn’t do the performance justice, but we continued after this to spend a few hours in the studio and we recorded some great pieces that we’ll be sharing over the coming months. Finally, to the much asked question of “is Antonio going to record an album?”, the answer is plans are underway. Thanks for the continued support of Antonio, we hope you enjoy these pieces.

Here is what people had to say about this recording:

You just keep getting better and better every day. 🙂 – JR

Again so beautifull. Tears already at the start. Thank you so much Antonio. Really really looking forward to your album. Good luck – EMK

So beautiful! I wish I could hear Antonio live before his voice changes. – MT
