In the Press

Der smarte Italiener saß schon mit neun Jahren in der Arena di Verona und lauschte der Oper Aida, während seine Klassenkameraden dem Leder nachjagten.  Aufgewaschen in Verdis Heimatort Busseto und mit einem Opernfan als Großvater zur Seite, bedeutete es dem Schüler nichts Außergewöhnliches, täglich Musik des berühmten Komponisten zu hören.  Und als er 11-jährig den Startenor Luciano Pavarotti mit der Arie Nessun dorma aus Turandot im TV sah, war er von der Interpretation so überwältigt, dass er nur mehr einen Wunsch äußerte.

Opera News reviews Salzburg Festival 'Don Giovanni' on DVD

". . . the cast is wonderful . . . The Giovanni-Leporello recitative exchanges flow like oil. Luca Pisaroni’s singing is immaculate and strong; his gangling Leporello can’t conceal that he looks and sounds like a Giovanni . . ." (Mark Mandel, Opera News)

Borusan Philharmonic welcomes 2016 in updated Viennese style

Borusan Philharmonic welcomes 2016 in updated Viennese style

"Lasting almost three hours, the sold-out audience at the Lütfi Kırdar Convention Center auditorium was treated to a three-century span of classical overtures and opera excerpts by Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti, followed by traditional Viennese operetta classics by Lehar and Johann Strauss, followed by American musical theater gems by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers, Frederick Loewe and Leonard Bernstein.

What made this concert special was the spectacular debuts of the two singers, who not only made their first appearances in İstanbul but sang together for the first time, and under Goetzel's baton. By all considerations, it was a winning vocal duo, as both singers' expertise carried the evening's yeoman task (they probably sang more here than in a standard opera) with sophistication and aplomb throughout extensive repertoire in three languages (Italian, German and English) . . .

'Benefit concert at the Laeiszhalle moved the audience'

'Benefit concert at the Laeiszhalle moved the audience'

"Luca Pisaroni's singing touched the audience. He showed his heart in Hamburg and sang an entire charity concert for network Flaschenpost eV, an inclusive network that is committed to diversity and coexistence, beyond illness or handicap. In the first part of the evening, he offered arias and songs by Bellini, Rossini and Tosti - then in the second part Broadway songs by Gershwin and Porter. The Italian bass-baritone was never without an effect on the public. Cheers and a tear or two of emotion happend because of the intensity of his soulful singing."
