Notes & Reviews:

To mark their 15th anniversary, Naïve presents limited edition 2 CD sets featuring recordings from their most emblematic artists.

MusicWeb International, 22nd December 2014
Piau's coloratura singing is amazing... Production values are, as always with Nanve, high and the repertoire is mostly unhackneyed, so this set should be a very attractive buy for all Handel aficionados.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Church of San Girolamo, Bagnacavallo, Italy (12/2008); Institut Pontifical de Musique Sacrée, Roma, Italy (12/2008).
