New contract, new challenges – Piotr Beczala signs to PENTATONE
This week was full of important events and exciting news. Last Tuesday, on the stage of the Wiener Staatsoper, Piotr debuted as Don Jose in the new Carmen production and received many great reviews.
Soon after Piotr and the classical music label PENTATONE have announced, that they have signed an exclusive, multi-album contract. Piotr’s first solo recording on PENTATONE will focus on the works of Puccini and his contemporaries, and include some of the repertoire’s most beloved arias. Further details will be announced at a later date.
Piotr truly looks forward to a new challenge and to collaboration with PENTATONE – a company with a glorious past that now seems ready for a bright future. “I look forward to working with an enthusiastic team that understands the modern age, but also cherishes traditional values. This combination creates fabulous prospects for beautiful recordings. Stay tuned!” he says in his statement.
“I have known and admired Piotr Beczala for over a decade, and it has been fascinating to watch him emerge as one of the finest (some would even say the finest) tenors on the scene today: the elegance, the artistry, the integrity – the beauty of his singing is unparallele”, said Renaud Loranger, the Vice President Artists and Repertoire in PENTATONE. “ Our previous collaborations definitely count as personal highlights, and it is an extraordinary privilege to continue documenting this journey with him, as he extends his already vast repertoire.”
Simon Eder, Managing Director of PENTATONE, said in his statement for the press: “I am thrilled to welcome Piotr Beczala and really looking forward to the collaboration with such an outstanding tenor. This is a wonderful opportunity to continue the expansion of our vocal catalogue with the first planned project, focusing on works of Puccini and his contemporaries.”
