Notes & Reviews:

The Telegraph
The hair-raising roulades, trills and enormously wide leaps hold no terrors for her. The performances, directed by René Jacobs, are stylish and expressive, as well as pyrotechnically breathtaking.

The Independent
Vivica Genaux is a major star in the making...coupled with Jacobs' stylish accompaniment, Genaux's faultless presentation of this richly ornamented music easily overcomes any risks in the repertoire.
