Notes & Reviews:
Even four centuries after its first performance, Monteverdi's L'Orfeo reigns as one of the most enduringly popular of all operatic works and remains solidly in today's repertoire. Sergio Vartolo's historically-informed interpretation enthralls listeners by revealing the full genius of what we today consider the first "real" opera. Superb performances from singers like Sara Mingardo elevate this recording to the level of essential listening.
BBC Music Magazine, September 2012
Ably delivered by Itailan singers and players, but mannered effects - self-conscious musical direction, slow tempos - too often devalue idiomatic virtues.
MusicWeb International, 10th May 2013
The singing is on a high level with a very good chorus and first class contributions from the many secondary singers. Sylvia Pozzer who sings Musica as well as Euridice, is lovely and fresh voiced...[Matteuzzi] is an excellent Orfeo, expressive and able to vary his tone exquisitely...[Mingardo] sings gloriously in Act IV.
Personnel: Angela Bucci, Loris Bertolo, Gianpaolo Dal Dosso, Sara Mingardo, Ilaria Zanetti, Sylvia Pozzer, Gabriella Martellacci, Francesco De Poli, Michele Andalò, William Matteuzzi, Gian Paolo Fagotto (vocals).
