Notes & Reviews:

The Vivaldi Edition presents the world premiere recording of the opera 'Atenaid'. The cast features some of the greatest modern day interpreters of Vivaldi’s music, including the internationally renowned soprano Sandrine Piau in the title role, experienced early music exponents Nathalie Stutzmann, Vivica Genaux and Guillemette Laurens, the very talented young singer Romina Basso, and old hands Paul Agnew and Stefano Ferrari.

BBC Music Magazine
Conductor Federico Maria Sardellià has assembled a strong cast of soloists for L'Atendaide from among which Sandrine Piau in the title roleà and Paul Agnew as Leontino, her father, stand out for their accomplished techniquesà All in all a stimulating and accomplished achievement.

Gramophone Magazine
Vivica Genaux, Nathalie Stutzmann and Guillemette Laurens all contribute some good dramatic singing, and Romina Basso's creamy melodic singing is outstanding. Conductor Sardelli's methods are never extreme for the sake of a cheap thrill. Here we find a sincere attempt to let the story unfold through clearly communicated and simply delivered recitatives and superbly paced arias, and Modo Antiquo play with plenty of vivaciousness and sonority.
