Press Reviews

"Andrew Rader’s is perhaps one of the purest and most vibrant Countertenors that I have heard in memory, recent or otherwise... his Behold recitative and O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion, complete with interesting and appropriate ornamentation, had me smiling from ear to ear."

~Annette Skaggs,

"The one singer of the whole session who really made me sit up in my seat was American countertenor Andrew Rader.  His Zelenka was classy and expressive.  In his Bach piece he nailed the runs with a precision that no-one else matched and his Empio, dirò, tu sei from Giulio Cesare was accurate, powerful, indeed thrilling.  Throughout he displayed wonderful legato and an easy tone and seemed to have plenty more in the tank.  I’d very much like to see more of him."

"...[his] voice was as solid as his character's faith."

~Thomas Busse, San Francisco Classical Voice, referring to a performance of Carissimi's Historia di Job
