On to a new tenor album full of the same old arias. But this is a worthwhile new tenor album from Benjamin Bernheim, a rising French star. Bernheim’s voice is fluid, supple and incredibly easy on the ear: he could sing a shopping list and make it sound elegant. There is a tendency to anonymity in his interpretation – his characters aren’t hugely delineated – but if you get the chance to see him live then rush: it is a luxurious treat of a voice. And meanwhile, enjoy him here as Werther, Lensky, Nemorino, Rodolfo and so on. Emmanuel Villaume conducts with sensitivity.
