Reception follows the concert
Topi Lehtipuu was born in Australia of Finnish parents and grew up in Tampere, Finland. As a full time student of the Sibelius Academy he perfected his musical education in piano, violin, choir conducting, and singing. At the same time he dedicated himself to an unusual range of artistic activities.
Excerpts from Reviews:
Topi Lehtipuu is an imposingly handsome figure on the stage and owns a big supple tenor voice that is pure gold throughout his range. He has the technique of a man born to perform Baroque and bel canto music, but he is equally at home singing music form all periods, including contemporary works.
The timbre is very good – lyrical yet full and heroic, with a sufficient amount of ‘bite’ for the ‘war horse’ pieces, yet fully lyrical for the more tender pieces.
Lehtipuu’s recital shines in both performance and in selection of repertoire.
