Young soprano Rosa Feola captured international attention as a treble prize-winner at the Plácido Domingo World Opera Competition (2010). Attributed ‘blazing star potential’ for her sensitive phrasing and imaginative colouring of words (Telegraph), she brings her feel for text to this celebration of music and Italian poetry, in which master orchestrator Respighi paints Tuscan folk scenes and woodland deities and the virtuoso Liszt is inspired by Petrarch.

Presenting the major singers of today and the stars of tomorrow, the Rosenblatt Recitals are London's only world-class season of opera recitals.


In their search for the vocal stars of the future, Rosenblatt Recitals have enjoyed an impressive hit-rate. Now that the live recitals (originally at St John’s, Smith Square, more recently at Wigmore Hall) have started to spawn studio-made recordings, they are bringing their finds to a wider audience. Of these three latest discs, one is an absolute winner. The young Italian soprano Rosa Feola is everything that Rosenblatt Recitals hope to discover – a beautiful voice in its youthful prime, an artist on the threshold of an auspicious career. Richard Fairman
Gramophone March 2016
[Rosa Feola's] singing is marked by poise and eloquence, and she spins out seamless phrases with unflagging care for the words, whether in Respighi’s Tuscan songs, Martucci’s more expansive Tre Pezzi, or parallel Dante settings by Ponchielli and Pinsuti. Erica Jeal
