Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The voice has body, especially in the upper middle register, and an exciting ring on top.

International Herald Tribune
Yet its chief glories are musical, not least the sterling performance of the young Polish tenor Piotr Beczala as Riccardo, which has Berliners drawing comparisons to Jussi Björling. He is certainly the best in this challenging role since Pavarotti.

Opera
Beczala displays throughout not only a tone of liquid gold but also a sensitive engagement with the shape of Gounod's line as well as the meaning of the words he sings. He caps the performance with a flawlessly placed top C that is fully integrated into the rest of his voice. It's a simply glorious sound.
