    Mariusz Kwiecien's journey to the top of his profession has been remarkably rapid and assured for a young man from Kraków who arrived in New York at the age of 23. The Met's current Don Giovanni, Polish baritone Mariusz, has won over audiences in many of the world's greatest opera houses with his powerful interpretations. For his first solo recital he employs his mellifluous and burnished voice to great effect in Polish, Russian and Czech arias which are very close to his heart.  A collection of operatic gems, familiar and rare, including the electric final scene from Szymanowski's 'King Roger', which joins Giovanni as his favourite role.
