Movie Reviews

"look out world here comes the tenors...ten of them"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 11/23/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Rhino Records presents not just Three Tenors or Irish Tenors...but the latest surprise on the classical scene is The Ten Tenors with their new DVD... "Larger Than Life", featuring a eleven track and 60 minute Live performance on DVD...Australian gentlemen who will thrill you with classical vocal repertoire of ballads and even a classic rock tune or two.

Students in 1995 studying opera classics, they performed in 1998 while attending the University and began touring...haven't stopped since ~ their individuality and comradeship with close touching harmony will soon grab you and never let go ~ outstanding performances "STONDE" [Patrick Abrial/Jean Marc Grossi/Thierry Micaelli], beautiful beyond words, "POR UNA CABEZA" [Carlos Gardel/Alfredo Le Para], the tango from the film "Scent Of A Woman", the vocal is extraordinary, "SUNDANCE" [Andy Arthurs/Philip Chambon], folk genre beat with tempos that get completely under your skin, terrific arrangements by the composer, "DESTINY LIES" [Craig Atkinson/Stewart Morris], lead vocal by Jason Turbull reads like a Top Ten New Age Hit, full orchestra and chorus abound ~ "CONQUEST OF PARADISE" [Vangelis], non stop harmony and brilliant orchestration with the full voices of The Ten Tenors, enough power to light up a big city block ~ "BICYCLE RACE" [Freddie Mercury], the ultimate big hit of Queen, brilliant arrangements by Shannon Brown and Drew Graham.

If you love classical and outstanding vocals by young talent, then this one has your name on it...watch out world here comes some of the best of the best around today...hats off to Rhino and Warner Bros. for this one of a kind release...hope to see more of the same...piano, arranger and synthesizer by Steven Baker..the DVD is really a trip and a half...great job by one and all ~ The Ten Tenors...if you enjoyed the DVD, why not pick up the compact disc of 14 tracks and a sampling of DVD, a great package for the season...just the way you like 'em!

Total Time: 60 mins on 11 Tracks/DVD ~ Rhino Home Video 970400 ~ (11/23/2004)"
The Ten Tenors are Totally Amazing!
V. Pierce | 04/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My parents and I watched the show in Philadelphia on March 18th with front row seats. Do you know that these guys are cute, handsome, single (I think), and also have perfect teeth? Their songs are amazing: Funiculi Funicula, Thunder Point, Nessun Dorma, Por Una Cabeza, Water, The Australian Medley, and Rawhide are my personal favorites. Their songs are inspiring and sometimes a tearjerker. Their all natural voices bring back past memories. The music is amazing (talk about the "overature" to Funiculi Funicula!). I salute you Craig, Craig, Dion (the understudy), Shannon, Tod, Chopper, Dom, Stewart, David, Liam and Drew."
I must see these men in live performance

"This is full, rich, rounded musical sound of mature and trained voices performing in range from hauntingly lyrical to full throated vigorous drama. And here, among all excellent pieces, is the best Waltzing Matilda I've ever heard! The performers are talented, likable and inventive, and their enjoyment in their music is infectious. I am so glad to have found this group. I'll have to travel quite a ways to catch them live, but that is an audience I MUST take part in."
I'm so hooked!

"I, too, caught just the last few minutes of their "Larger Than Life" concert broadcast on PBS, and was instantly hooked! I could not wait to order their CD and DVD on line. I have not been this excited about a vocal band since The Beatles hit the shores of the U.S. -- and TTT are soooooo much better! Since receiving the CD, I've rarely listened to anything else. And their physical performance -- so subtle, but so effective. When they sing in unison, they are as one voice -- a true sign of a really professional and first quality group. They are H-O-T!!!"
