Notes & Reviews:

'Truly beautiful music consists in [... ] singing to the accompaniment of the viol' (Baldassare Castiglione in his famous Book of the Courtier, Venice, 1528). Here Viva Bianca Luna Biffi brings one of the most refined traditions of Renaissance culture back to life, applying it to the frottola repertoire, in the form of a miniature opera on the subject of love, with its intimate solitude and the intense emotions - happiness, torment, hope, disappointment - that go with it.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The voice and instrument are perfect allies and co-conspirators: each has a distinctive character, neither giving in to the other but pushing each other to the heights of dramatic expression. Gentleness, coquettishness, worldly-wise resignation, pleasure, assertiveness, and many other feelings are conveyed in these powerful performances.
