Bejun has been named part of the 2014 Classical Champions League by the venerated Austrian newspaper Kurier. He has been recognized for his spectacular and unforgettable performance as Orfeo in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice at the Vienna Festival: “It seems there are no limits for Mehta’s voice . . .” (Kurier)
Opera News has also acknowledged two other remarkable achievements by Mr. Mehta in 2014. The Arthaus film version of Orfeo ed Euridice featuring Bejun in the title role (director Ondrej Halvelka, Václav Luks and Collegium 1704) has been named one of the magazine’s Top Five DVD and Blu-ray Releases of 2014. This video was also an Editor’s Choice Selection and DVD of the Month by Gramophone Magazine last year. He received a second Opera News ‘Best of’ notice in the title role of Handel’s Orlando, recognized as one of their Top Twelve Favorite Full-Length Opera CD Releases. This Archiv label recording features the B’Rock Orchestra led by René Jacobs.
