Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Naive's Vivaldi Edition has been full of surprises...this particular opera recording promises to be one of the ultimate landmarks. Though Vivaldi's operas tend to have their ups and downs, this one not only doesn't slip into autopilot but shows the composer in a ceaselessly dazzling level of invention... Though Naive's past Vivaldi opera recordings have all been well-cast, this one has an unusually high density of star names, including the much-adored countertenor Philippe Jaroussky. The performance's primary catalyst, however, is charismatic early-music conductor Jean-Christophe Spinosi, who has great instincts for projecting the specific personality of each aria..."
