Last season press said
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.
