John's CD of the week: Joseph Calleja – The Maltese Tenor

This is an outstanding new album of opera arias, from one of the most exciting tenors on the opera stage today. Joseph Calleja performs favourites by Massenet, Verdi and Puccini.

Drawing comparisons with legendary tenors like Jussi Björling, Beniamino Gigli and Enrico Caruso, he's been a hit on both sides of the Atlantic where he recently caused a stir at New York's Metropolitan Opera in the title role of Bartlett Sher's new Tales Of Hoffmann.

Join John Suchet every weekday morning, just after 10am, to discover this remarkable talent for yourself.
