Review

It’s been a busy year for Alfie Boe, who recently completed a stint in the West End in Les Mis, released a new album and is preparing for a UK tour. This is a chance for the tenor to give his remarkable voice a rest and instead nominate the music that moves him, from performances by opera stars Maria Callas and Enrico Caruso to themes from films The Big Country and The Godfather.

Summary

In a festive special, the tenor features a host of popular classical songs from yesteryear, and pays tribute to the repertoire of former Radio 2 show Your Hundred Best Tunes. His selections include recordings by Enrico Caruso, Maria Callas and Richard Crooks, plus excerpts from Ralph Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending and Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
