…the vocal masterclass here is given by Paterson’s Cavaradossi. Paterson’s tone is rich and warm, full of loving tenderness without compromising in power or timbre. He pitches the perfect amount of vibrato to add depth to his vocal and still keep control of the melody. It’s an assured performance that is often only found after many years of practice or, in very rare cases, by individuals with a purely natural talent for mastering the profundities of the discipline. Paterson is a very special singer indeed.
