Pene Pati’s self-titled debut album is released on Warner Classics. Featuring favourites of French and Italian opera, such as ‘Ah! Lève-toi soleil’ and ‘La donna è mobile’, and uncovered gems of Meyerbeer and Godard, Pene presents his calling-card roles alongside lesser-heard specialties, performed with Orchestre national Bordeaux Aquitaine and Emmanuel Villaume.
Already recognised by Opéra Magazine as their ‘Diamond’ Album of the Month, Pati garners special praise in Opera Now’s 5* review for “his high-placed and open sound, with a naturally sunny vocal hue. But in the recitative alone he impresses with his attention to the text and his phrasing…As well as the bravura numbers, there is an innate sense of style and elegance at work here”.
