Lively interpretations

»His trump card is a baritone of remarkable musicality, flexible at all times, rich in color and capable of the most delicate nuances. [...] His velvety timbre and expressive phrasing open up the song miniatures with such plasticity that one can only admire the voice's gesture, which is as simple as it is theatrical,« is how Crescendo magazine judges Simon Keenlyside. The English star baritone, who was recently awarded the title »Sir« by the British royal family, is known for his intelligent interpretations. Keenlyside believes that most songs have not only a double meaning in music and lyrics, but often three to five different levels of meaning, all of which are impossible to present simultaneously. But because each interpretation taps into a different story, the melody remains alive for both singer and audience.
