Michaels-Moore will create the role of Professor Adamson in a production directed by Robert Carsen and conducted by Gianandrea Noseda.

AMM's LATEST ALBUM OUT NOW

AMM CD cover
LONDON, ENGLAND: From what Opera News has hailed as "one of the most gorgeous voices on the opera stage today " comes a Standford marine song-recital by Baritone Anthony Michaels-Moore, which celebrates a time when England ruled the waves. Michaels-Moore's cycles by Vaughan Williams look further, from the Dorset vales towards America and the far horizon that has always attracted poets and composers.

Song of the Sea, Songs of Travel was released on April 2, 2013 and is available on CD and digital download.

THE BUZZ

"A perfect gem sensitively performed... Michaels-Moore assumes an appropriately darker timbre and an inwardness of expression that inveigles the listener into submitting... It’s good to have Anthony Michaels-Moore’s sovereign artistry captured in repertoire that he serves so well, for there is much here to relish and return to."

-Classical Source

"In all these sea-faring songs Michaels-Moore's voice is richly unfurled. Stanford's settings are great fun, especially when sung and played as enthusiastically as here. As his songs do not receive the attention that they deserve, these selections fill a gap."

-International Record Review



decoration


"The recording catches Michaels-Moore's voice well, displaying a good firm baritone, with a strongly focused core and only a hint of extra vibrato on the longer notes. Histrionically he catches the mood of Stanford's songs just right. His open, direct delivery also revealing the subtler undercurrents in the songs. ...Lovers of Michaels-Moore's live performances will welcome this disc, but it is also a highly satisfying recital in its own right."

-Robert Hugill
