Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, 25th March 2015
For Rossini completists, then, this set - all 4h 12mins of it - is a must, and there's some stylish, lively conducting from Antonino Fogliani, who certainly galvanises the orchestra and chorus...The best contributions come from Judith Howarth as Mathilde and Michael Spyres as Arnold.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2015
Foster-Williams's Tell is solemn and determined, if a little rough around the edges, Michael Spyres's Arnold generally fluent and lyrical, Judith Howarth's Mathilde passionate and engaged, Tara Stafford's Jemmy punchy and nicely scaled...There's sterling work from the orchestra under the skilful baton of Antonino Fogliani.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2015
Foster-Williams marries an appropriately sympathetic theatrical presence with vocal production that is both focused and refined. Much the same could be said of Judith Howarth's Matilde...Antonino Fogliano's conducting is very fine. Each act is astutely placed and shaped, as indeed is the entire opera.
