Notes and Editorial Reviews

Diana Montague's Isolier is a bright sparkling jewel of a performance ... Sumi Jo's Comtesse is a joy, too, fetching, dramatic and vocally expert ... In Act 1 Sumi Jo is all aerial brilliance ... in the Act 2 denouement, Jo brings a steely glint to her tone that leaves Ory, his fortunes sinking as fast as the vocal tessitura, in no doubt about who is the victor and who the vanquished ... John Aler ... is an accomplished Ory ... what Gardiner and his team invariably achieve is a strong sense of dramatic actuality ... this new set will give considerable pleasure to anyone who has yet to discover the inexhaustible delights afforded by this delectable score.

-- Gramophone [October 1989]
