The CD contains some of the favourite and frequently performed tenor arias from operas by Verdi, Rossini, Puccini. Alongside with them Oghnyan Nikolov has included in the programme several duets. Having started his career in the last decade of the 20th century, Oghnyan Nikolov became famous as a master of interpreting such trying parts as Scipione, Idomeneo and Titus, all of them from operas by Mozart. An amazing balance of registers and technical skills, combined with musical talent and beautiful voice are features characteristic of the tenor, who has already become popular not only in his native country but also in a number of European opera theatres. Of special merit are his interpretations of Baroque and Early-classical music. At the same time the density of his voice enables him to perform tenor parts from operas by Verdi and Puccini, which makes the release of particular artistic value.
