This year, bel canto tenor extraordinaire Lawrence Brownlee’s birthday falls on Thanksgiving day! So we relish this opportunity to combine our warmest birthday wishes with not only our boundless pride, but also our sincerest expression of THANKS that we can claim Larry as a Delos artist.
Acclaimed worldwide as perhaps the greatest bel canto tenor before the operatic public today, Larry has been showered with awards and distinctions – not the least of which are the honors accorded to his two vocally spectacular Delos albums:
Virtuoso Rossini Arias (DE 3455) was nominated not only for for a 2016 Grammy award, but was also nominated for the best vocal recital prize in the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA): Europe’s equivalent to our American Grammy competition. And again this year, his Allegro io son album (DE 3515) has garnered yet another nomination (same category) for the ICMA’s top prize in 2017! And we’re keeping out fingers crossed for another Grammy nomination (to be announced in two weeks). For both albums, Larry shares the spotlight with maestro Constantine Orbelian and his Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra.
What more could a label hope for from one of its artists? So, Larry, as you combine your birthday and Thanksgiving celebrations this year, know that all of us at Delos will be giving thanks for YOU and your peerless artistry!
