My old sparring partner Don Satz writes of Ian Bostridge:
>I consider him the leading current tenor in the world.
Some years ago, while I was living in Scotland, I heard him in the
Australian Opera production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the Edinburgh
Festival, and a few weeks later I sat in the Tramway in Glasgow, only a few
feet away from him as he sang the Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings.
Since those two performances, I have not doubted that he is a very
exceptional singer, and a very fine musician as well. He deserves far
greater recognition, and I expect that he will eventually get it.
