Naive's Vivaldi Edition is proud to release another of the unknown operas by Antonio Vivaldi. Conducted by one of the masters of baroque opera, Alan Curtis, and gathering an impressive vocal cast (Topi Lehtipuu, Roberta Mameli, Ann Hallenberg, Sonia Prina), Catone in utica marks the 15th opera in the series and is one of the Venetian master's great, late operas.

 Well done September 2, 2013 By Paul M. (Poughkeepsie, NY) See All My Reviews "Fine recorded sound. Excellent soloists and ensemble playing. Upon first listening to this recording I felt it was lacking in dynamics and spirit. However, after several hearings I have recanted my initial impression." Report Abuse
