Reviews

“Giorgio Berrugi is an impressive Duke. He has a very big and even voice, but it’s what he does with it which is most interesting. He finds details in the music which are so often overlooked and really makes the most of this somewhat one-dimensional character. The famous aria “La donna è mobile” is wonderfully sung, with just the right amount of rubato and it never begins to cloy or sound routine as such well known arias can.”
Matthew Lynch, Bachtrack 

“Bella musicalità, naturalezza e nitore di emissione tenorile per Giorgio Berrugi.”
Maria Luisa Abate, Deartes.cloud 

“Corposa e generosa è la voce di Giorgio Berrugi, tenore, perfettamente a proprio agio nella parte e dotato della giusta musicalità.”
Grigorij Filippo Calcagno, IeriOggiDomaniOpera.com 

“Anche a Macduff il francese offre un aplomb di nobile compostezza più in linea col personaggio, leale aristocratico, giustizier de’ tiranni che il borghese piagnisteo che lo affligge in italiano. Merito certo anche del tenore Berrugi, vario ed articolato nel fraseggio, perentorio nell’assertiva, generosa vocalità, modellata sulla parola come conviene ad un cantore verdiano.”
Bernardo Pieri, Musica 

“Giorgio Berrugi campe un admirable Mario Cavaradossi : la tonalité chaude, très intimiste, de ses accents lyriques accentue la fragilité tourmentée du personnage.”
Jean-Luc Vannier, musicologie.org
