Reviews
 

Baritone Mark Stone has it all: a terrific technique, theatrical presence and a voice guaranteed to tingle bits of your spine never tingled before. (Classic FM Magazine)

This is not a recital restricted to one vocal hue. Each song is looked at and receives relevant response from both singer and pianist. (International Record Review)

Versatile in his response to the varying stylistic demands, Stone communicates with charm and eloquence, Stephen Barlow accompanying his voice with a genuine feeling for tone-colour and shape. (Birmingham Post)

Stone’s light, lyric baritone is perfectly suited for this mostly gentle material, and he sings with great sensitivity to text and to dynamic shading. (Fanfare)
