“Tenor José Heredia as her lover, Alfredo Germont, was appropriately ardent and exhibited a flexible, buoyant and lissome lyric quality."
— Charles Geyer
Dominican tenor José Heredia has thrilled audiences with his voice of "Pavarottian shimmer." Son of a Merengue singer, Heredia grew up surrounded by music. Although he enjoyed all genres, he had a special love for classical music.
Carnegie Hall Debut
IV Short Stories at the Standard Hotel, Op. 6, written for string quartet, two singers, and voice, are based on short stories written by composer Julián De La Chica during his first months living in New York. The Scorchio Quartet and tenor Jose Heredia explore the possibility of the stories as fractures where light eventually enters. Two singers perform voices making “noise,” evoking the soundscape of everyday repetition. The set is a look at this meeting place where everyone is alone. The big city gives them a break when they simply sit and listen as ephemeral flowers on a table at the Standard Hotel.
