Yaniv d’Or, Countertenor
Dan Deutsch, Piano
Countertenor Yaniv Do’r brings brings a refreshing perspective to the Dichterliebe from Schumann’s proverbial ‘year of song’. French songs of the 19th and 20th centuries offer d’Or’s exotic voice further dimensions in the floating harmonies of the young Duparc and Debussy, including Reynaldo Hahn’s beautiful Bach pastiche, and concluding with the classical simplicity of Poulenc’s first songs.

“Latino Ladino is the latest album from the inventive countertenor Yaniv d’Or.
His rich, honeyed falsetto guides us through various Ladino traditions, eventually crossing the Atlantic to the Missa Mexicana of 1677.”
– Gramophone
“The brainchild of Yaniv d’Or, this programme of mostly traditional and Baroque music that flourished in exiled communities is performed with panache by the countertenor and the period group he founded, Ensemble NAYA.”
– BBC Music Magazine ★★★★
“What makes this recording of these ancient reflections on beauty, love, joy and sorrow so profoundly expressive of basic human feelings and needs is the haunting voice and vulnerable phrasing of Yaniv d’Or’s haunting countertenor, backed by a folkish Baroque instrumental backdrop that suggests a Fellini fantasy.”
