“…supported by a physical presence and good looks that, from contemporary reviews, are now evident and are obviously the reason why [Piccaluga] was chosen by certain composers to create leading roles in a number of operas. Added to this is a high degree of musicianship and natural musicality….His technique, after what proved to be a very short time of formal study with Giuseppe Borgatti, was largely self-developed…but nevertheless, at times, quite awesome.”

- Alan Bilgora, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2002
