Roberto Ortiz and the Richard Lewis Recital

Roberto Ortiz and Hester Crombie

The young mexican Tenor and friend, Roberto Ortiz gave a fantastic solo recital last night at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Accompanied by Hester Crombie, Roberto cruised through a programme featuring Monteverdi, Handel, Mozart, Verdi but also songs from Schubert, Hahn and Rossini.
Without doubt, this is one of the finest young upcoming voices, his smooth tenor giving an air of great class and control. Roberto has given concert recitals with Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and was recently awarded the Clonter Opera Prize 2010. Look out for this young man!
