Mike Ashman
Gramophone, April 2015

…Nucci takes the opportunity here to invest several familiar numbers from his repertoire with most clearly defined emotional colourings. This becomes an acted performance, a fresh look with the benefit of long performance experience rather than just a re-run of standards.

Good natural sound. Recommended. © 2015 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

Ira Siff
Opera News, March 2015

Still a remarkable vocal presence at seventy-two, Leo Nucci offers this disc of late-career traversals of some of Verdi’s most demanding baritone arias, along with three of the composer’s songs. Because Nucci is such a celebrated Verdi baritone…this is a viable collection on its own terms.

…Nucci sounds pretty terrific…[the] richness of tone and solid high notes are not in short supply. © 2015 Opera News Read complete review
