«powerfull voice with so many colours»
Montserrat Caballe (2016)
«Mit teils glänzender Höhe ist der Wiener Sänger zweifellos eine mögliche Besetzung für 'Figaro', 'Tosca', 'Don Carlo' und 'Tannhäuser'. „Besetzungschefs werden viel Freude an dem Album haben, denn die kernige Stimme, das männliche Timbre und die belastbare Höhe sind nicht ohne Reiz“»
klassik.com Dr. Kevin Clarke (2017)
«Die Auswahl der Arien ist beachtlich! Stefan Unterleithner beweist somit nicht nur mit seiner kraftvollen Mittellage und sicheren Höhe Gespür für die jeweiligen Rollen, sondern punktet auch, sowohl im Italienischen als auch im Deutschen, mit extremer Wortdeutlichkeit. Alles in allem ein sehr gelungenes Debütalbum! Ein wohlklingender und vielversprechender Bariton von dem wir noch viel hören werden!"»

Bio

Viennese bass-baritone Stefan Unterleithner studied at the Conservatoire of the Vienna Archdiocese and at the Conservatoire of Music and Performing Arts. He studied piano and organ and proceeded to vocal studies as a student of world renowned Wagnerian Bass-Baritone Kammers&aumlnger Peter Wimberger (Vienna State-Opera, Metropolitan Opera New York). He was also taught by star-soprano Montserrat Caballe at her master classes in Zaragoza (Spain) who praised him for the unique beauty and power of his voice and was also taught by Star-Tenor Marcello Giordani at his Masterclasses in Sicily.  His operatic roles includes parts as Figaro, and Count Almaviva in The Marriage of Figaro, Minister in Fidelio, Papageno in Zauberflöte, Minister in Zauberflöte, Tonio in Pagliacci, Banco in Macbeth and Rodrigo in Don Carlo, as well as the dramatic bass-baritone parts of Strauss and Wagner – Johanaan in Salome and Wotan in Rheingold. After giving his debut as Banco in Verdi’s Opera Macbeth in London with English Opera Singers he had appearances in England, Spain, Italy and Germany. He works regularly with Hans Fuchsberger, repetiteur at the Vienna State Opera to enlarge his repertory. In oratorio he has sung Haydn’s The Creation, Rossini’s Stabat Mater, Mozart, Bizet and Bach. In 2012 VRC records produced the Album ARIAS with Stefan Unterleithner. In this Album which is focused on opera arias, Stefan Unterleithner presents himself in various pieces of different composers starting with Mozart and Donizetti and going to Verdi and Wagner, closing even with verismo of  Umberto Giordano. The renowned “Richard Wagner Verband Wien” gave an excellent recension and recommended this CD, immediate after it was published. 2015 he appeared in Rosenkavalier at the Osterfestpiele Baden-Baden.
