Notes & Reviews:
A talent firmly rooted in the style of her contemporaries Mozart and Haydn but imbued with a refreshingly feminine vivacity. The cantata "Il primo amore" and aria "Berenice, ah che fai?" are brought to life by the gloriously sweet-toned soprano Nuria Rial, while the formidable Nicoleta Paraschivescu directs the lithe players of La Floridiana.
Gramophone Magazine, August 2012
Nicoleta Paraschivescu and her little band of woodwind, horns and single strings are powerful advocates and Nuria Rial is splendidly passionate in the scena. Buy the disc: you won't regret it.
BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
Paraschivescu and La Floridiana draw us into Martines's music through exquisite detailing...The archness of Martines's phrasing, the delicacy of her dancing pulses, and the sly timing of her modal shifts bloom gorgeously. Soprano Nuria Rial is equally appealing...all the music richly deserves to be heard.
