Bryan Hymel reprises Verdi Requiem with Rotterdam Philharmonic in San Sebastián

Bryan_Hymell-5879-2Following a concert performance of Berlioz’s La damnation de Faust with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Bryan Hymel returns to San Sebastián’s Auditorio Kursaal on August 26. The American tenor reunites with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Rotterdam Philharmonic to reprise Verdi’s Requiem.

Of an earlier performance at the orchestra’s home in the Netherlands, Bachtrack praised Bryan’s part in Verdi’s monumental work, writing that the tenor’s “technically seamless Ingemisco was one of the evening’s high points. His bright, Italianate sound and dynamic suppleness are ideal for Verdi and he was greatly moving in this shame-filled entreaty.”
