Notes & Reviews:

Thanks to his outstanding virtuosity and heart-stretching expressivity, countertenor Franco Fagioli is one of the most exciting vocal artists of our time. Arias for Caffarelli is Fagoli's first album on Naïve and comes after his triumph in renowned Vinci's Artaserse production. The full-color 76-page booklet includes essays and pictures about the music life in Naples, Caffarelli and Farinelli etc.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
Il Pomo d'Oro play with theatrical verve and Fagioli's rapid high passages are astonishing.

The Guardian, 29th August 2013
It's a jaw-dropping disc. Fagioli is one of today's great vocal technicians, and the ease and almost superhuman agility with which he attacks some of the big bravura numbers are simply staggering.

The Independent, 24th August 2013
Fagioli scintillates in this beautifully sung, played, programmed, and packaged recording...Minasi directs a vivacious performance from Il Pomo d'oro while Fagioli displays outstanding technique and alluring tone.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
All the pieces here are tours-de-force. Franco Fagioli's ability to switch between arpeggiated fireworks and softer elegance is especially on display in Leo's 'Sperai Vicino Il Lido' from Demofoonte, and sweet oboe obbligato tendrils are embraced and caressed with delicate vocal textures in Pergolesi's 'Lieto Cosi Talvolta' from Adriano In Siria. Making it clear that he is one of the top countertenors today.
