Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, 15th April 2015
There have been many very fine recent releases of Handel and Vivaldi recitals, but few of them have featured a mezzo, let alone one of this quality ... Staskiewicz's powerful voice is as striking as her picture on the CD cover.

Mezzo-soprano Blandine Staskiewicz Tempesta has, for her first recital disc, chosen to venture into the emotional storms and calms beloved of Baroque composers - notably Vivaldi and Handel - intensely charged arias that captivates listeners still. Ms. Staskiewicz (who has appeared on previous Glossa albums in the company of Hervé Niquet and Fabio Bonizzoni) herself contributes an intriguing note about this program's genesis - complete with alluring cover design - but it is the singer's superlative control and expertise in Baroque repertoire that Tempesta best highlights.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2015
I do not always sense tangible engagement with dramatic characterisations, but the nuanced vibrancy from Staskiewicz and Les Ambassadeurs in the tempestuous 'Siam navi all'onde algenti' from Vivaldi's L'Olimpiade is irresistible.
