Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
After he has handsomely done his classical duty with arias from Verdi, Puccini, Mozart and Cilea among others, Grigolo lets rip with popular Italian songs, emoting in a properly verismo manner about being lovesick and homesick for the southern sun and the Mediterranean moon...his is an attractive, light lyric voice with a pleasing top but, as yet, shallow in the lower register.

Gramophone Magazine
Grigolo's bright, forward projection and not huge voice suits this Three Tenors repertoire well and he handles it with more respect (and, dare one say, taste) and intelligent use of the words than some of his predecessors therein. The Italian pops, especially 'Arrivederci, Roma', have a refreshing simplicity...this sounds like a serious artist and he's been well recorded and produced.

International Record Review
Like Pavarotti, Grigolo has a forward projection of the voice which propels it smoothly along the line, thus helping legato. His lyric tenor is supple and has a pleasant sound, and he has the virtue of being able (and willing) to employ vocal dynamic, which always benefit strophic songs...Grigolo puts across each message in winning tones.

The Independent
He brings the same muscular charm to "Torna a Surriento" and "Arrivederci Roma" as he does to "La donna e mobile" and "La danza". Most impressive of all, emotion courses through every syllable of Lucio Dalla's "Caruso".
