Andrew Tortise


"...Andrew Tortise’s compelling account of the Prologue, three minutes that can pass for very little in performance. Tortise sang superbly as Quint for the rest of the evening, too, the frequent passages of melisma that Britten gives the character stripped of all archness and affectation and delivered with an ease of voice production that rendered their malevolant insinuations all the more unsettling."
