Bejun Mehta

Writing in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, Michael Stallknecht called him "arguably the best counter tenor in the world today."

 

Of his CD for the Delos label in 1983 (Bejun DE 3019), Leonard Bernstein commented, "It is hard to believe the richness and maturity of musical understanding in this adolescent boy."

 

Mehta had attempted for several years to sing as a baritone, without much success. "I was average, just average," he says.
