Notes and Editorial Reviews



An object lesson in putting together a Baroque opera arias recital disc

"Exhilarating" and "dazzling" are only two of the words critic David Vickers uses to describe this smashing release. In a brilliantly put-together programme, Simone Kermes blazes a trail through more than a dozen Vivaldi arias. There are vocal fireworks aplenty, alongside a rapt concentration in the slower pieces. Essential listening.

-- Gramophone [5/2008]
