Notes & Reviews:

"Opera Rara have done it again. Just as the company produced the must-have opera recording of 2007 in 'Dom Sebastien', 'Imelda de' Lambertazzi' is guaranteed to be a highlight of 2008. Don't hesitate to get your hands on it as soon as possible." -MusicalCriticism.com

The Guardian
[This recording's] strengths lie in powerhouse performances from James Westman as Bonifacio and Massimo Giordano as Imelda's appalling brother Lamberto. Nicole Cabell's Imelda, though exquisite, seems disengaged in comparison. Mark Elder's conducting is wonderfully insistent, while the dark, period sound of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment adds immeasurably to the oppressive atmosphere of it all.
