I don't know if this is what you're getting at or not -- that he sounds more shallow or less impressive on recordings? Personally, I found his voice at the Met to be very rich and nuanced.
    I guess that's probably right. I can enjoy many other singers' CDs almost as much as in person. For some reason, Grigolo's voice sounded different in the recording than when I saw him live. Maybe the fault is mine, not his!

    Recordings don't always flatter bright voices, or voices with a lot of edge or without much depth of tone. I heard Birgit Nilsson live a couple of times, and her tone sounded less bright and more rounded in the house. Not that she isn't impressive in recordings, of course.
