Messiah / Seattle Symphony Orchestra

Bowen made the kind of impact not heard here since the lone Messiah appearance in Seattle of the great English tenor Philip Langridge, back in the late 1970s. Lyrical and agile, with considerable expressive depth, Bowen delivered every phrase as if it had just occurred to him, with unfailingly expressive spontaneity. His Thy rebuke was positively heart-rending | Seattle Times

L'incoronazione di Poppea | Angers-Nantes Opera

Excellently facetious in the farcical, schoolboy sequences which punctuate the drama, his dynamic phrasing rises to full-bodied heights | ôlyrix

Never-failing articulation: it's a true pleasure to "taste the text" in these scenes, Bowen revealing the exasperation as much as the sensual outbursts of which the character is capable | classiquenews
