Notes & Reviews:

"By exploring works that move the emotions of the listener I Fagiolini present a sumptuous selection of madrigals which demonstrate both the huge variety of Monteverdi’s musical language and the flexibility of their artistry. Even with so many recordings of Monteverdi’s works now jostling for our attention, this new release from I Fagiolini is highly desirable and reinforces what an exciting project their Monteverdi series has been so far." -MusicalCriticism.com

BBC Music Magazine
... the third in a series of Monteverdi madrigal anthologies... shows terrific musical discernment. The experience and flair of I Fagiolini is clearly demonstrated across these styles and textures. ... the Baroque instrumentalists under violinist Bjarte Eike add much to the Ballo della Ingrate - the high plucked strings accompanying Amore are magical, and Plutone's magnificent bass singing is neatly supported.

Gramophone Magazine
... most successful... is the Ballo delle ingrate, one of the most coherent accounts of it I can remember, with a sharply delineated Pluto. The variety of continuo instruments is highly effective, and the work's dramatic line holds until the final, valedictory exhortation.

The Independent on Sunday
The range of effects is startling: from the dazed idée fixe of "T'amo, mia vita!" (1605) to the bouyant ground bass of "Zefiro torna" (1632), here brilliantly animated by chitarrone, harp and harpsichord. Most exciting, however, is the group's reading of "Ballo delle Ingrate" and Barokksolistene's sullen dance for the damned.
