La Cieca apologizes in advance to her dear colleague the Barihunks site, but she’s happy to unveil the latest of the barihunk breed. She first noticed this singer because he has an ideal barihunk name: Holger Falk. He’s appearing in L’incoranazione di Poppea at the Boston Early Music Festival, where he garnered a strongly positive review from Allan Kozinn in the New York Times (“a solid, appealingly rounded sound that captured Ottone’s shift from sad sack to violent avenger to reformed lover”).
But Mr. Falk has more than just a fine voice and an apt monicker going on here. He has also that most important quality, the barihunk look, as evidenced by these photos from his website.
