Reviews:

“This recital… shows him on peak form…all the Verdi items show the true heroic quality of his voice, still baritonal enough to sound completely happy in the wide range demanded …. Bergonzi’s is a remarkable voice and this is consistently enjoyable… conducting is incisive and dramatic”
Penguin Guide

“Bergonzi sings with sincerity and style”
Opera magazine

“Bergonzi emerges as a model among tenors, with a rare feeling for the shaping of phrases and attention to detail.”
