From the most awarded producers in the sounds industry, DOUG ROGERS and NICK PHOENIX, VOICES OF OPERA is now available for purchase

WORLD-RENOWNED SINGERS

Larisa Martinez

LARISA MARTINEZ has established a strong and unique presence in the classical performance world. She’s currently performing with opera titan Andrea Bocelli as his principal soprano on his world tour. She is a winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition PR district 2016, where she also received the Angel Ramos Foundation Award and Audience Prize. She earned raved reviews as Musetta in Loft Opera’s critically acclaimed production of La Bohéme and for her other leading roles in Verdi’s Rigoletto, Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, Rossini’s Adina, Floyd’s Susannah, and Donizetti’s Don Pasquale and Lucia di Lammermoor.

 
Carlton Moe

Heralded by the New York Times as an "ardent tenor," CARLTON MOE is currently performing as Ubaldo Piangi in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera, the longest running show on Broadway. His opera credits include Lakmé (Gerald), I Capuletti e I Montecchi (Tebaldo), The Mother of Us All (John Adams), Ernest Bloch's Macbeth (Malcolm), and Roméo et Juliette (Tybalt). He has also performed as a soloist in major works such as Verdi’s Requiem, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, Mozart’s Requiem, and Handel’s Messiah.

"I have always loved opera", said co-producer Doug Rogers "at its best, it can send shivers down your spine. And that's what happened when I saw Andrea Bocelli and Larisa Martinez performing together at the Hollywood Bowl. Larisa agreed to work with us on VOICES OF OPERA. The recording sessions were sensational. She has the voice of an angel, her pitch is perfect, her range and vocal power unsurpassed. Then the opportunity arose to add tenor Carlton Moe (Phantom of the Opera) to the project. He just has this incredibly rich tone. It was truly a labor of love."

PRISTINE RECORDING TECHNIQUES

The same pristine recording techniques that make all of theirproducts sound so rich and detailed went into the recording of Voices of Opera. Choose between multiple mic positions including Close, Rear, and Room. The close mic is a Telefunken 251 that gives you intense attention to detail. For the duet phrases, an additional Neuman U67 was used to fully capture the sound of both singers. The Rear includes a pair of vintage Coles 4038s that give off more warmth and space of the room. The Room mix includes a Decca tree made up of M50s and outriggers with a pair of AKG C12s, replicating the mic set-up of a classical stage. These are all vintage tube microphones that you cannot get your hands on anymore. All recordings were made at EastWest Studios, their world famous recording studios known for producing more Grammy nominations than any other studio in the world.
