JUNG CULTURE MAGAZINE. April 2015.
(Gala Concert, Alamos, Mexico)
The admirable technique of Monsalve, a technique from the old school that allows him to prop his
vocal emission firmly to build a vibrant sound, ample, safe and that runs with brightness, despite its
natural baritone dark accents. This is a true spinto Tenor, from a good school, with timbral flashes
of ilk singers as Mario Del Monaco and with full awareness of his instrument and what he can
achieve with it, giving him a personal identity that seeks no imitation.
