Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
Nicquet puts the drama at the top of his agenda, but also shows a strong sense of line and a gracious way with the dances...Vidal is attractive as the troubled Arzace. This is a passionate performance, well recorded and well delivered; a pity Cate offers us so little melody.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2012
I find this opera's sound world immensely attractive... The performance by Niquet's original-instrument band seems especially well graded in melodramatic terms, the cast are uniformly strong and the live Montpellier concert recording effective.

International Record Review, February 2013
Herve Niquet sustains the development of the music up to the final act, with some euphonious playing and singing from Le Concert Spirituel.

The Guardian, 13th September 2012
Niquet's commitment to the piece is never in doubt, but the score is hamstrung by Catel's weakness as a melodist. The title role requires considerable histrionic powers, and Maria Riccarda Wesseling is impressive in it.
