Tim Beveridge:
Singer TBCD001

Cardiff hosts not only the Singer of the World contest, but also the biennial  BBC Voice of Musical Theatre competition, which this week threw up a surprise (and rather unworthy) winner in the form of an American falsettist. The finalist who should have won was New Zealand tenor Tim Beveridge, whose swashbuckling charisma and impeccable artistry put him head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. So catch him instead on his own debut-disc, which begins with 'On the Street Where You Live', continues through a dazzling series of timeless hits, and concludes with 'Music of the Night' (yes, Beveridge is the Kiwi Phantom). Sooner or later, this boy is going to hit it big: get hold of this record, on which he is supported by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, and remember that you read it here first.
