Notes & Reviews:

Czech soprano Hana Blaíková is one of the most exciting voices in the baroque music scene today. Her new solo recording Vienna 1709 focuses on arias from operas and oratorios that were composed in Vienna during the first two decades of the 18th century. It includes works by Fux, Ariosti and Bononcini. Conductor and viol soloist Petr Wagner and Ensemble Tourbillon provide able support for Blaíková and her clear, angelic soprano voice - which is capable of both great virtuosity and delicate sensitivity.

Early Music Review, October 2014
This lovely collection reveals a repertoire of exceptional quality ... an imaginative issue that makes for beguiling listening.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014
An ingenious collection of high-Baroque soprano arias with viola da gamba. Fux includes a chalumeau - a high point. Some hard-edged vocal tone, and reverberant acoustic, but enjoyable.

International Record Review, January 2015
Blazikova and Wagner work well together, with her shining tone sitting with the warmth of the instrument.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The best thing about this recording is the terrific warmth the ensemble brings to these rarely heard gems of the Baroque. Blazikova sings with absolute clarity and beautiful line; and Wagner's viola da gamba playing is in perfect duet with her, graceful and clear. In Fux's 'Sent Nel Core', Wagner's playing is precise and the ensemble is supportive and rich but not overdone. The Ariosti sinfonia included on the recording is lovely; Ales Ambrosi and Petra Ambrosi, the ensemble's fine oboe players, play wonderfully together. As in the rest of the recording, the sound is both crystal clear and warm. Ariosti's 'Tal Vicina A Giglio' moves along at a nice clip; both Wagner and Blazikova handle the virtuosic writing with aplomb. 'Prole Tenera' is heartfelt and was for me the high point of the program.
