"A golden and natural lyric tenor, even throughout the range and sensitive to text, with the benefit of solid top notes."

Of the “straight” characters, perhaps the most effective was Ilker Arcayürek's Tamino. He is a very stylish singer. His “Dies Bildnis” was lovely and throughout he maintained a pleasing blend of beautiful tone and expressiveness coupled with convincing acting.

“In a class on his own: Ilker Arcayürek has the kind of airy, easily ringing tenor that puts across words beautifully, with power in reserve yet a hint of vulnerability too.”
"This BBC New Generation Artist sings with such freshness and sincerity that even his melancholy is sweetly compelling [...] Schubert, who saw his songs performed casually in living rooms among friends, would love this wonderfully intimate recording."

Der Tenor Ilker Arcayürek sorgt als Ariel inmitten der überwältigenden Sonnenaufgangsmusik für selige Momente des Schwebens.
