Notes & Reviews:

"Piau's merits as a light, superbly deft, essentially lyric soprano are well established by now. She understands the Handelian style well, contributing some effective embellishments in da capo repeats and especially brilliant cadenzas. Her unfailing pinpoint-accuracy in pitch allows her to toss off the more florid or flashy numbers with absolute confidence and flair. Precisely because of such purity of sound, her delivery of poignant or tragic material allows us to appreciate her expressiveness without distraction." - American Record Guide
