Notes & Reviews:

Young soprano Rosa Feola captured international attention as a treble prize-winner at the Plcido Domingo World Opera Competition (2010). Attributed 'blazing star potential' for her sensitive phrasing and imaginative coloring of words (Telegraph), she brings her feel for text to this celebration of music and Italian poetry, in which master orchestrator Respighi paints Tuscan folk scenes and woodland deities and the virtuoso Liszt is inspired by Petrarch.

The Guardian, 7th January 2016
[Feola's] singing is marked by poise and eloquence, and she spins out seamless phrases with unflagging care for the words... even in the Liszt, which takes Feola into the higher, more dramatic reaches, there is no sense of her communication being hemmed in by vocal limitations. Pianist Iain Burnside is supportive and vivid throughout.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
Feola is everything that Rosenblatt Recitals hope to discover - a beautiful voice in its youthful prime, an artist upon the threshold of an auspicious career...at the close of 'Pace non trovo', she rises to an effortless D flat - a high point, in every sense, of singing that is graced everywhere with an elegant sweetness without ever feeling sentimental or saccharine.
