Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
This is vocal writing that thrives on extremes: complex, emphatic, dissonant and brilliantly embellished...Invernizzi is a fearless singer. Some notes are stripped violently dry and thin, others made hot and heavy with vibrato, and her fioritura in Monteverdi's Voglio di vita uscir is coruscating.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2014
Invernizzi's delivery is forthright, refusing to relax and bloom into vibrato until the very last, digging deep into the suspensions that give this music its emotional friction. She delivers operatic scope within the intimate framework of a vocal recital...Recorded close, this disc has all the brightness and directness of a live performance.
