“ Burak Bilgili, a bass sang with bags of power and had true Verdian authority. ”

“ His warm voice is as deep as the ocean, and he used it to create a compelling portrayal. ”

“ His commanding voice, flecked with golden, spicy tones, is unusually expansive for a bass; Bilgili easily projected it above the orchestra. ”

“ The leather-throated basso seemed to relish the inky naughtiness of his role …Certainly, his powerful and supple voice was a pleasure to hear. ”
