“Mr. Martinucci made his presence felt through clarity and pointed delivery. The wild and extended applause, especially from some upper reaches of the Met balconies, seemed a little out of scale…. This is New York City and 1990, but one would almost have thought there was a claque at work up there."

- Bernard Holland, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 10 December, 1990 (after the occasion of Martinucci’s Andrea Chénier)

“Martinucci was a leading Italian tenor in the 1950's and 1960's. This was the era of big-voiced tenors: del Monaco, di Stefano, Corelli, Bergonzi. Martinucci was right up there with the big and expansive sound….The voice is as hard as iron, unwavering, unbending. It is a thrilling sound, but a little goes a long way.”

- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, March/April, 2011
