NIKOLAI MYASKOVSKY – СФИНКС – THE SPHINX OP.2 NO.11. PIANIST MATTHEW JORYSZ

“Russian pessimism, potently performed by countertenor Hamish McLaren”

“ …his tone is not just ‘sweet’ but very focused and distinctive, and his articulation of the Russian texts of these songs is idiomatically forthright, with consonants making their mark.”

Claire Seymour, Opera Today, July 2021.
