"[Weber's] voice was of fine quality, with an even scale and extensive range. [Weber’s] long-breathed legato line, splendid, florid technique, and dramatic gifts ensure…huge pleasure. What they cannot show is the sheer brilliance and size of the voice. He could astonish the listener with the power of his forte and then switch to a beguiling pianissimo, which carried easily to the farthest parts of the opera house. It comes as no surprise to learn that early in his career he sang several performances with the incomparable baritone, Mattia Battistini, who remained his idol and model all his life….For those who enjoy superlative bass singing, this is a ‘must’.
