Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times, 18th January 2015
Alluring of voice and dazzling of technique, the (female) soprano Invernizzi gives 15 of [Gizzi's] arias beautifully.

CD Review, 31st January 2015
An attractive assembly of arias by Vinci, Alessandro Scarlatti, Bononcini, Porpora and others... a pretty good introduction to some rare repertoire, separated by just enough instrumental symphony as to allow us to breathe.

The Observer, 1st February 2015
Her tone is brilliant and pure, especially at the top of the register, but lacks raw power...The music by Feo, Vinci, Scarlatti and others is intermittently compelling, with Porpora's Adelaide of 1723 emerging as an opera worth exploring.

Early Music Review, February 2015
Invernizzi sings with her customary elegance and intelligence ... I Turchini are also on top form.

Early Music Today, March/May 2015
Roberta Invernizzi sings superbly.

This new Antonio Florio-directed Glossa recording, once more focusing on a famous Italian Baroque-era singer, again features soprano Roberta Invernizzi. "Arias for Domenico Gizzi" traces the spectacular career of an artist whose importance lay not just in his (castrato) voice, but also his skill in being engaged to sing in operas which served the political needs of powerful early 18th c. patrons. Ms. Invernizzi's choice of arias from across Gizzi's years of glory, typically representing heroic male characters, draws on operas by, among others, A. Scarlatti, Bononcini and Porpora.
