Reviews of “Jerusalem”:

“… his easy legato and nuanced, tapered dynamics create a thoughtful, inward quality evoking the finest Fausts.” – Opera News
“Tenor Marcello Giordani … shows off his best traits here: a muscular, bright high range, a big open sound, and (this is new) a warmer, more flexible middle range.” – Star Ledger
