"Lyrical and pulsating, wistful, passionate and powerful, sensual and vivacious, all shades of chanson came to light on this evening. Cantilenas are swept away, garlands of song are led to  tender vibratos or break into declamatory operatic gestures….

The perfection of his voice, the virtuoso piano accompaniment and the empathetic interpretation of the text constitute a sense of accomplished unity."

"Alone Di Rosa’s soft as silk voice that vibrated ecstatically in the air was exceedingly impressive. The way that the young tenor interpreted the chanson songs let the audience feel that he not only enjoys the music and text, but loves it with heart and soul."

"Di Rosa studied at the Saarbrücken music college where he had at his disposal a resonanceful tenor voice with expressive middle register and three dimensional deep register that is made to measure for the Aznavour songs with there unique expressivity. Just as Aznavour himself Di Rosa understands marvellously how to let his voice ring out for a very long time before setting the vibrato in motion. His voice was so voluminous and powerful he didn’t actually need a microphone at all."

You can become addicted to listening to him.

You could not have wished for a better start to the concert season at the Bel Étage in the Saarbrücken Casino. The guest artist in the packed out hall was Tenor Vincenzo Di Rosa with his partner Georgi Mundrov on piano. That meant international chanson of the finest. As soon as the first line of the melody from the new programme  “Pure Passion“ sounded it was clear why they have been both allowed to come back six times.

The Saarbrücken Music College trained French -Italian, when looked at objectively only offered old hat because Vincenzo Di Rosa prefers to follow in the footsteps of the old masters of the French and Italian Chansons.

Although he performed pieces from great names such as Jacques Brel to Charles Aznavour to Gino Paoli, with an intensity that raised the hairs on the back of your neck, he succeeded in creating his own unmistakeable style which of course is owed to his bewitching voice.

His voice presents itself as soft as silk then with indulgent sensuality, only then to kindle the fire of emotional purgatory with its stupendous brilliance and crescendos, which are just short of being orgiastic. The commissioned song “ Ich mag es so “ composed by the philosophy student, Daniel Schmitz, reveals Di Rosa’s potential to make the seamless transition to singing with the very best in his field. The male rendition of Edith Piaf’s classic, “ Je ne regrette rien” is also an interesting experience.  Unfortunately, after four encores by the artist it was the end at Bel etage. Unfortunate, because listening to Vincenzo di Rosa can make you completely addicted.
