“ Ivo Stánchev builds an expressive Salieri: weighed, reflexive and tormented in a credible way. Vocally he exhibits a line of great refinement, with a wide and polished vocal range grounded on a subtle low register, which he displays with controlled power and a fleshy and surround colour. Without a doubt, he gave the most believable character and musically the most interesting.”

“the other Bass, Cano… sung by Ivo Stanchev, a most pleasant surprise. The Bulgarian Base presents himself with a round, warm and beautiful voice. With a perfect colour of voice and musically gifted, he gives the character an unattended specific weight.”
