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

Recital – New York, NY

As Guest Artist for David Daniels, Carnegie Hall

“His [David Daniel’s] performance of Benjamin Britten’s ‘Abraham and Isaac,’ for which he was joined by the wonderfully sincere tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, was a never-to-be-forgotten occasion, with Martin Katz playing piano as though the composer himself were turning his pages.”

Terry Teachout, The Washington Post, December 2, 2002

“In one point of departure from the recital norm, Mr. Daniels brought theatrical drama, and another singer, onto the stage: Anthony Dean Griffey, the tenor, joined him and his accompanist, Martin Katz, in Britten’s Canticle II: Abraham and Isaac. It was an inspired choice: the piece was lovely, and both singers performed it outstandingly, starting in the pitch-black auditorium, their backs to the audience, joining in the harmonies Britten used to limn the voice of God. Mr. Griffey was a powerful, satisfying Abraham, and Isaac’s music, written for the darker-toned mezzo Kathleen Ferrier, seemed to fit Mr. Daniels like a glove.”
