Notes & Reviews:

'His technique is superb, and the lyric quality of his voice is so beautiful!' Praise from Placido Domingo for Albanian lyric tenor Saimir Pirgu, who's continued winning plaudits on operatic stages the world over. Recorded with one of the world's finest orchestras, this recital goes from strength to strength showcasing his affinity for the Verdi roles and the 'silken touch' (New York Times) he brings to both the verismo repertoire and the French and Italian bel canto.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
Pirgu's timbre isn't quite Italianate but he sounds rather like Giuseppe di Stefano in the area from A flat to B flat above the stave - slightly strained but exciting too...The heroic ring in Macduff's aria from Macbeth hints at heavier Verdi roles that could come in time if Pirgu looks after his voice and selects his roles with care. A disc that promises much.
