Huw Rhys-Evans is a menacing, almost fascistic, Apollo, ........
Richard Morrison -THE TIMES October 2006
Of the excellent quartet of soloists, two shone out especially for me the tenor, Huw Rhys Evans, and the soprano, Linda Gerrard but the contribution of mezzo Kathleen Wilkinson and Paul Keohone, bass, must not be underestimated.
Evans was an evangelist to die for, his voice ideal for the role. His recitatives were clear and precise, his arias perfection, despite a brief eclipse by a wonderful flute obligato in Haste Ye Shepherds.

He did not skitter lightly through the cantilenas and coloraturas, but sang them out with an expressive, masculine Tenor giving his character courage and and conviction - Torvaldo e Dorliska - Rossini in Wildbad

Also imnpressive was HUW RHYS-EVANS as Filippo, who made an instant impact in his Act 1 aria when he orders his daughter to marry Nencio whether she likes it or not. His conveyance of the text was the best of the five, in fact allowing us to hear every word without straining.

.......while in the gun tooting Errico's famous scena, graphically likening the pursuits of love to those of the chase, Huw Rhys-Evans, with equally gorgeous tone and engaging personality, brought the house down.....

As Pilade, Oreste's friend, we heard Huw Rhys-Evans, who had been the worthy, late-replacing tenor in the aforementioned Semiramide. He had less to sing here but enough to show that he also could take such music in his stride. It was good casting all around.
John T Hughes - THE GUARDIAN February 2004
