Raymond Tuttle
Fanfare, September 2009

Although his Werther isn’t as passionate as that of Rolando Villazón, Marcelo Álvarez is a fine alternative in a similarly warm-blooded style. His vocal enthusiasm argues against the idea that Werther is a principled gentleman, but perhaps that is the point. …As Charlotte, Elīna Garanča looks chic and makes lots of attractive noises. …she sounds great, and for now that’s enough. …as Albert, Eröd is both a threat and a plausible rival. Jordan’s conducting is stylish, and makes a positive impression without intruding. © 2009 Fanfare Read complete review
