"Matteuzzi has been widely admired, not least for the good taste and the stylistic refinement of his singing. This is evident...[as it] calls to mind the name of Tito Schipa.”


“Italian tenor William Matteuzzi had a unique voice. And if Pavarotti was hailed as the ‘King of the High Cs’, Matteuzzi can rightfully be claimed the ‘King of the High Fs’ – high F above high C! His specialty was the high stratosphere of the 19th Century bel canto school of Rossini, Donizetti, and Bellini with throat-shredding tessitura and high notes….Matteuzzi sings everything full voice! – big, imposing, colorful in sound, with agility to spare and sensible musicality….Saving the best for the end, Matteuzzi roars through the incredibly difficult ‘Credeasi Misera’ from Bellini’s PURITANI. It must be heard to be believed.”
