Basso Cantante

Hire Petros Magoulas ›
«Magoulas, George Petrou’s bass-of-choice, is another find, and his ‘Fiacchero’ sets the tone for a performance that balances agility with weight and heft – a tremendous improvement on the surface-skating lightness of Curtis’s Riccardo Ristori.»
http://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/handel-arminio (2017)
«Star des Abends ist Petros Magoulas, der es als Pagano mit seinem profunden Bass versteht, zum einen das Diabolische zu vermitteln, was ihn zum Vatermörder werden lässt, zum anderen aber auch der Reue Ausdruck zu verleihen, die er als Eremit empfindet und die letztendlich kurz vor seinem Tod zur Versöhnung mit dem Bruder führt.»

«Petros Magoulas was a superbly acted Osmin who relished his low notes and the extra arias that Mozart gave the role.»
