CD Reviews

Heere is something different

"Vinci's buffo opera is given a warm and intriguing performance in this set. (The Gramophone review accompanying this listing is for some different work.) Though clearly early 18th century, the music has strong reminiscences of earlier traditions, and the work has quite a different mixing of orchestral and other accompaniment patterns from other comtemporary works with which I am familiar. The work exhibits a wide variety of mood and tone within the context of the opera buffa. By and large the singing is distinguished, though often with a rather harsh edge possibly representing the common nature of the drama and the Napolitan dialect. I enjoyed this set as much as I do recordings of Vivaldi. It is intriguing, different and well done,"
A must!

"this is the best CD I bought in the last 3 years: it's truli a one-of-a-kind!!! If you really want to get a sense of the sound in the streets of Naples in the XVI century get this is a great choice.
The ensemble really understands the music and the singers, especially Patrizia Bovi are mesmerizing! BRAVI"
