“Italian bass Paolo Pecchioli, outlined a funny and enjoyable Mustafà. The sound of his resounding dark voice was incisive and sharp. His phrasing was elegant and his harmonic sound emission was abundant.” — Operaclick.com
“Pecchioli, in his company debut, boomed his full, true bass into the house throughout the performance and executed perfect runs and coloratura. The Italian also showed the most stage prowess of the entire cast. Despite being assigned stock Rossinian silliness, Pecchioli acted a funny and clever Mustafà without coming off as juvenile.” — Paul Wooley
“Assai efficace la caratterizzazione interpretativa, prima ancora che vocale offerta da Paolo Pecchioli nei panni di Don Basilio. Alto e magro, con la veste rattoppata, i lunghi capelli scomposti, le mani affusolate, con quelle dita che sembrano tenaglie quando si aprono e si chiudono per accompagnare espressivamente il mellifluo ed untuoso carattere del personaggio nella sua sibillina avidità che la regia pare rendere un po’ ambigua, trovano in lui un artista di notevoli doti espressive. La voce è limpida e sicura negli acuti, esibiti senza difficoltà nel “colpo di cannone” della “Calunnia” e nel finale dell’aria stessa, chiosata con un sovracuto fuori ordinanza che fa il suo effetto.” — Alessandro Mormile – L’Opera
“As Figaro, Paolo Pecchioli brings the iconic character to life through his fantastic bass voice and his wild, exaggerated facial expressions. His Figaro is a delightfully rubber-faced rogue with a penchant for mischief.” — Jeff Davis , broadwayworld.com
“Also stupendous was the performance of bass Paolo Pecchioli in the role of Alidoro…
…Paolo Pecchioli was marvelous in his performance of the solemn and wise Alidoro, and his extraordinary voice (one of the most beautiful bass voices that I have heard in my life), perfectly depicted the characterization of the role. One can say that Alidoro is the most Verdian of Rossini’s characters: the grand romantic nature that he gave to the role, and that Pecchioli superbly interpreted, is one of the most intensive musical creations of the great composer from Pesaro. Pecchioli would be suitable for an opera of Verdi like Il Trovatore or Simon Boccanegra. He has all the right gifts to face the challenge of such roles and is undoubtedly a Verdian bass of rare quality.”
