Notes & Reviews:
The Incoronazione di Dario, composed in 1717, is the Vivaldi Edition's sixteenth opera and its 53rd release. It marks Naive's halfway point in the bold enterprise launched by in 2000 to record the 450 works in Vivaldi's personal library. An excellent cast, including mezzo Sara Mingardo and tenor Anders Dahlin in the star-role of Dario, act out this drama with conviction. The Accademia Bizantina is led by conductor Ottavio Dantone.
BBC Music Magazine, July 2014
Vivaldi's music is beguiling right from the sparkling C major Sinfonia...Vocal cast and instrumentalists are first-rate and all is swiftly paced under Ottavio Dantone's direction.
International Record Review, September 2014
The instrumentalists of Accademia Bizantina are on splendid form.
