GRAMOPHONE EDITOR'S CHOICE - July 2016

"Nicholas Phan’s precise florid passagework in ‘Di cieco orrore e d’ombra’ is one of Winter’s gutsier outbursts, although he also has the softly mellifluous ‘Sull’orme de’ grand’Avi’ (with a gentle pair of oboes)...McGegan’s experienced direction and the musical finesse of his Californian orchestra. This is a delightfully enjoyable revelation of the elder Scarlatti’s genius."

     — Gramophone    


“...simply superb...Tenor Nicholas Phan sings marvelously, with great strength and heroic timbre."
    — San Francisco Classical Voice


OPERA NEWS CRITIC'S CHOICE  - October 2016

"Tenor Nicholas Phan also shows a wonderful sense of language and contour in Winter’s recitatives. He brings vocal personality and dramatic shape to the many text repetitions of the vigorous aria 'Di cieco orrore' and keeps the chromatic and complicated 'Sull’orme de grand’avi supple and fluid."
