HÄNDELTESEO (Wiederaufnahme in Karlsruhe)

Als Egeo, König von Athen, wartete der junge italienische Countertenor Flavio Ferri-Benedetti mit starker Bühnenpräsenz auf. Er spielte den eitlen König hervorragend und beeindruckte mit seiner großen stimmlichen Bandbreite.”

Online Merker — Feb 2016

Egeo was sung by another young countenor, Flavio Ferri-Benedetti whose voice is equally sweet if softer grained, and who sings with graceful subtle ornamentation.’”

Bach and Vivaldi at Eisenach (Bach Festwochen)

Con Forma Antiqva

Thüringer Allgemeine / TLZ 29 March 2016

Carlos Mena had to cancel because of health problems! He was supposed to be the cherry on top of the Festival, and now Flavio Ferri-Benedetti had to replace him — also an alumnus of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. With Vivaldi’s “Cessate omai cessate” he won stature, secured the control of breath and phrasing, and then showed in “Nisi Dominus” the capacity to express and shape the music, based on generally secure vocal basis. And in the encore (a subtle, wide, high melody) he finally convinced the audience with the real and thrilling melodiousness of his countertenor voice — here he was able to make use in the first line of all qualities a singer is capable of.” 

Also from other nations we can witness interesting contributions to the modern cultivation of Bach.”

SONO UN FUMO

(Berlin und Basel) — mit Ensemble il Profondo
Baroque & Contemporary Music — Staged by Aliénor Dauchez

Flavio Ferri-Benedetti ist ein agiler, ausgewogener Countertenor mit wunderbarem Piano, in einzelnen Momenten aber auch sehr geradlinig expressiv; auch darstellerisch stark, in seiner kurzen Hose wirkt er auf der Bühne herzzerreißend allein.”
