Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The singers are supported with great precision by Modo Antiquo, Their phrasing and articulation are so consistently fresh and exact that one almost forgets how much of this is the result of demanding schooling. Their panache is evident throughout, nowhere more so than in the strings and continuo as they imitate the flight of a butterfly. Music and dramatic flavor never found a higher union, it seems, than in Vivaldi's colorful elaborations, and Sardelli's orchestra and cast realize it beautifully in this most artificial of operas." - OPERA NEWS

"This is unquestionably one of the best Vivaldi opera sets of recent years." - FANFARE
