American Record Guide, November/December 2014
In another non-Italian performance (Freiburg) Bollon conducts with passion, orchestra and chorus easily sustain the pace. Filianoti is almost ideal as Federico, a beautiful sound with genuine Italian passion. He manages his robust voice well, scaling it back for the more intimate passages. The sweet retarded L'Innocente of Lee is quite touching. Orozco and Landolfi are the robust Metigio and a dignified Baldassare.
During the Italian verismo Francesco Cilea was the master of subtle portraits of the human soul. Leopoldo Marenco's libretto was based on Alphonse Daudet's drama L'Arlesienne. For its concert performance of L'Arlesiana, the Freiburg Philharmonic Orchestra engaged a singer on his way to international renown: Giuseppe Filianoti, who not only has scored a brilliant success in this role in Carnegie Hall but also on the stages of the New York Metropolitan Opera and the Milan Scala.Notes & Reviews:
