Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey produced large and gleaming tone and displayed subtle musical and verbal intelligence. He is an altogether exceptional artist.” – Boston Globe

Britten – WAR REQUIEM

Boston Symphony Orchestra – Tanglewood Festival

“The performance of the War Requiem was one of the highlights of Ozawa’s last season, and indeed of his entire career as music director.” “The newcomer was tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, less baroque in inflection than his predecessor Ian Bostridge, singing straightforwardly, and with plaintive beauty of tone and infinite sensitivity to text. Afterward, audience members fell into each other’s arms in cathartic hugs, and there were huge, grateful ovations for everyone.”

Richard Dyer, The Boston Globe, August 8, 2000
