“Baritone Tim Mix gets things just right in both operas: the solid, stolid Michele, driven to violence only in desperation; Pagliacci’s damaged, mocking Tonio—but also the sobering setup act in the Prologue. Add a gorgeous, well-textured voice and a too-rare command of legato.”

“Mr. Mix has a rolling baritone of natural beauty and pristine production. His instrument is thrillingly even up and down the range. Mr. Mix presented an especially well-sung Tonio. He reaffirmed my thinking that this solid talent is a voice to watch.”
