 What a thrilling voice! April 7, 2018 By peter damato (lumberton, NJ) See All My Reviews "Fabio Fagioli is the most full throated counter tenor I have ever heard. His octave range is amazing and the vocal dexterity that his voice displays is very impressive. I have heard many of these arias before but Fagioli made them sound fresh, new and very dramatic."
