International Record Review

May 2013

“The golden timbre of Roberto Aronica graces the title role...His commanding tenor makes one sit up and listen, with some notable long-breathed phrasing and a smooth legato a joy to hear...[Yu Guanqun's] is a rich, true lyric soprano with a glint of steel and strong, even emission in the upper register...[Frontali] sings with great command of Verdian shape and line”

MusicWeb International

July 2013

“the orchestra play with style and vigour. They bring out the dramatic nature of the work. As ever in this series, the chorus of the Teatro Regia, Parma, are outstanding in commitment...[Aronica] sings strongly and has no difficulty with the tessitura. His slightly baritonal tone comes with clarity of diction and a welcome and unforced ping.”
