and other Russian Romances, Borodin, Mussorgsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Rimsky-Korsakov, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky


"Amaize has a solid bass-baritone voice...I would be thrilled to encounter him in recital and hear a program like this one...His sharply focused sound, the strong high notes, and his comfortable generalized feel for the shape of the music are all assets. The recorded sound is quite good, natural and well-balanced."

" ...there is no voice or heart more perfectly suited to interpret these deep, rich Russian songs than his deep, rich Bass-Baritone...the combination of Rakhmaninov and Amaize is nothing short of amazing, and I was moved to tears on more than one occasion. Absolutely stunning!"
