Notes & Reviews:

In recent years German soprano Simone Kermes has been the sensation of press and public with her Vivaldi recordings. Here is a single CD compilation of highlights from her two solo Vivaldi recordings on Archiv Produktion, Amor Sacro and Amor Profano. Of Amor Profano, Opera magazine wrote: "Kermes's distinctive voice has an appealing smoothness and roundedness of tone... an intensely dramatic personality at work... super-precise coloratura... Kermes's technique is something to marvel at"; and Gramophone summed up: "Amor profano is a role model of how a Baroque opera arias recital disc should be put together - with proper research, affection for the composer, and top-notch artistry".

"On the level of sheer vocal beauty and virtuosity, this is a staggering disc. Throughout, the gorgeous Kermes voice glints like the finest gold picked out by a shaft of sunlight, unfailingly on the note, and negotiating every run and ornament incorporated in Vivaldi’s virtuoso writing with a consummate ease that at first takes the breath away, but then comes to seem almost routine. It isn’t routine, of course, and commands the utmost admiration and respect." -Fanfare
