Notes and Editorial Reviews

Charlie's talent and dedication has earned him much success and I believe his debut album of Neapolitan songs is a perfect match to his warm and poignant voice. I can say that Charlie will easily take his place with other great interpreters of this incredible music and tradition. -- Placido Domingo Charlie's talent and dedication has earned him much success and I believe his debut album of Neapolitan songs is a perfect match to his warm and poignant voice.

 Charles Castronovo a Great Tenor May 4, 2013 By Marion Zintak (Gold Canyon, AZ) See All My Reviews "I listened to the samples and he is great. I just became aware of this cd reading about in April 2013 Opera News. I guess I am prejudice because he is a cousin of mine. I originally met him in Santa Fe, New Mexico when he sang there. We compared relations and decided we are cousins. I have read many reviews on him and everyone agreed he is a great tenor. I hope to see him when he is near AZ and get him to autograph this recent cd for me." Report Abuse
