The role of rich and young landowner Fritz was sung by tenor Tuomas Miettola in the performance which was recorded 29th of March. During my considerably long career as a critic, I cannot recall ever hearing a more beautiful lyric tenor voice in Finland.
Miettola’s tenor voice is glimmery, agile and it reaches top notes easily. His vocal technic is confident, phrasing stylized and musical lines are elegant.
