Free Download: Jesús León sings Donizetti

This week’s free download is the aria ‘Amici miei, che allegro giorno!’ from Donizetti’s opera La figlia del reggimento. It’s performed by tenor Jesús Léon, whose new album on Opus Arte brings together bel canto arias by Bellini, Donizetti and Verdi.

‘There’s nothing like a tenor strutting his stuff; and it’s all there when the young Mexican Jesús León tackles ‘Amici miei’,’ writes Christopher Cook in the August issue of BBC Music Magazine. ‘León leaps up to that closing trio of top notes with all the swaggering confidence of the young Pavarotti who made this a signature aria at the beginning of his career.’
