Reviews[edit]

  • The flights and self-confidence of a young composer making his break-through are apparent throughout... That also applies to the name-part, mastered by Blagoj Nacoski with astonishing brilliance. (Frankfurter Rundschau, 21.08.2006)
  • Le ténor Blagoj Nacoski, remplaçant à cette occasion Christoph Strehl, malade, séduit par l’homogénéité de sa voix et sa ligne de chant. Il est permis de croire qu’un léger surcroît d’ardeur en fera, d’ici peu, un des plus magnifiques Ferrando qui soit. (Resmusica, 31.01.2006)
  • Blagoj Nacoski as Ferrando. I’ve never heard of him before, but when he first opened his mouth, I was mesmerized. His voice is so beautiful and creamy, it reminds me of whipped mascarpone. Although he sometimes was overshadowed by Drole’s energetic and passionate acting, but his gorgeous voice put him right back into the spotlight again. (FHL, 02.02.2006)
  • Le Belmonte du Macédonien Blagoj Nacoski, dont le timbre est idéal pour ce rôle, est très convaincant. (ConcertoNet, 09.09.2006)
  • Don Ottavio era interpretato da Blagoj Nacoski, applauditissimo dal pubblico e convincente nel cantare “Quel che a lei piace vita mi rende, quel che le incresce morte mi dà. S’ella sospira sospiro anch’io; è mia quell’ira, quel pianto è mio. E non ho bene s’ella non ha”. (Teatro, 13.11.2005)
  • Though Pogossov's a wonderful, A-list singer, the vocal prize would probably go (no wagering, please) to tenor Blagoj Nacoski as the Count. Almost annoyingly tall and handsome, Nacoski's purity and accuracy made it easy to accept his character's nobility and worth as a suitor for Rosina. (John Keillor, National Post, April 18, 2008)
