Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, 20th March 2015
Morte e Sepoltura di Christo dates from 1724, and is in some ways a fusion of the Italianate baroque oratorio with the German passion...Musically, the performance here feels stylish enough, but the singing sometimes seems dutiful rather than engaged.

With Antonio Caldara's Morte e sepoltura di Christo, released on Glossa just after a new album devoted to Vivaldi's late violin concertos, Fabio Biondi returns to the Italian oratorio, another of his specialities. The Venetians Caldara and Vivaldi may have been contemporaries but their career paths led them in different directions, and Caldara was to spend much time working in Mantua and Rome before securing the position of vice-Kapellmeister for the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI in Vienna. For the last twenty years of his life Caldara produced copious quantities of oratorios (and operas), adding a rich sense of counterpoint and making use of the broad orchestral colouring offered by the varied instruments available to him at the Imperial court. Composed for the Lenten season in 1724, Morte e sepoltura follows the typical two-part scheme of the time, to a text comprising a series of reflections as from personages involved in some way in the events of the Passion of Christ. Notable is the profusion of solo arias with obliggato instrumental parts. Fabio Biondi's recording, with a team of soloists led by Maria Grazia Schiavo and Silvia Frigato, also includes other echoes of Caldara's Italian past - a pair of motets and instrumental music (a Vivaldi Sonata also makes an appearance) - , and he directs the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, with which he has worked so successfully in the Norwegian orchestra's early music programme since 2006. The album also contains an exemplary essay by the leading Caldara scholar Brian W Pritchard.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2015
On a small number of occasions Biondi might be tinkering with orchestrations a little bit...Even without all the extra trimmings, this is an essential addition to the Caldara discography.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2015
Biondi is a bold guide. Sensitive to Caldara's idioms, he treats counterpoint severely and arias fulsomely, letting us hear how Caldara generates contrasting moods. And Biondi himself plays solo violin interpolations with exquisite delicacy... [Schiavo's] aria 'Lasciami, eterno amante', with its delicately entwined vocal-chalumeau lines, alone makes this disc worth buying.
