Pene Pati's Debut Album

Pene Pati has released a self-titled debut album, 'Pene Pati' which is available now to stream and purchase from the Warner Classics collection.



For his debut album on Warner Classics, Samoan tenor Pene Pati matches favorite showpiece arias with rarer operatic gems in a programme of Verdi, Rossini, Donizetti, Meyerbeer, Gounod and Benjamin Godard.

Pati has been called “a revelation … stunning for his generosity of voice, top notes of apparently invincible power, and alluring timbre, “ (Forum Opéra) and praised for his “gleaming, sensuous stream of sound” (San Francisco Chronicle). A singer of glowing lyricism who establishes an immediate rapport with his audience, Pati hopes that the album will leave listeners with a sense of “warmth, tenderness, and the sincerity of storytelling.

"To me, this is the essence of opera and the reason why I sing.” -Pene Pati

He is joined by conductor Emmanuel Villaume and the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine. ‍
