Notes and Editorial Reviews
Massimo Giordano studied the flute first, but shortly before his graduation discovered his great talent for singing. Since then, he gained significant popularity amongst opera lovers in the whole world. Starting in Italy, where he debuted in Spolento with Massenet’s “Werther”, he conquered the big international stages such as La Scala in Milan, New York Metropolitan Opera, as well as the Vienna Staatsoper and the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. International opera stars such as Anna Netrebko, Angela Gheorgiu and Natalie Dessay are his partners on stage and he works with world renown conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Fabio Luisi, James Levine, and Marco Armiliato. Now, after more than ten years of outstanding international success, Massimo presents his first solo album. For the album “AMORE E TORMENTO” (Love and Trouble), Massimo Giordano has complied a wonderful Italian bel canto program and impresses with Arias of outstanding composers like Verdi, Puccini and Giordano from operas like “Don Carlo”, “Manon Lescaut”, or “Andrea Chénier”. With Massimo Giordano’s exceptional voice, goose bumps are guaranteed.
