Rossini Operatic Arias

"Nimbus provide a clean, bright, well-balanced digital recording ... Giménez,with his cleanly focused, often almost feral tone, makes a striking effect."

 Although he has made some excellent Rossini recordings and sung in the principal operatic venues, he has perhaps never achieved the fame he deserved of the kind enjoyed by his successor Juan Diego Flórez.

He displays an extraordinary subtle command over colour, dynamics and the messa di voce. He has a trill and great florid capability in executing coloratura divisions; apart from the occasional squeezed top note his singing evinces virtually no technical flaws and he is mercifully free of the dreaded aspirates with which too many would-be Rossini tenors mar the line.
