CRITIC REVIEWS:

“‘Cultivated’ and ‘stylish’ are the words you come across most frequently when reading about the performances and records of Dino Borgioli….His main rivals in [his] repertoire at the time were Tito Schipa and Heddle Nash, both possessors of more inherently attractive voices, but neither perhaps quite as alert as Borgioli to the niceties at hand….We listen to his discs and long for tenors today to imitate Borgioli’s fastidious and charming ways.”

- Alan Blyth, Program Notes.



“An artist like Dino Borgioli, whom I have many a time had occasion to refer to in enthusiastic terms, is the rarest of rare exceptions. A 'Borgioli' is very rare anywhere, and even more so in Italy.”

- Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji. THE MUSICAL TIMES, June, 1937
