Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

For many years Fabio Biondi has been investing Italian scores with his own form of imaginative and deeply-considered musicality, and it is no real surprise to find him extending his reach past the Baroque and Classical eras and into early Romanticism with this Glossa release of Vincenzo Bellini's opera I Capuleti e i Montecchi. Bellini's masterpiece, first performed in 1830 - to Felice Romani's story of love confronted by struggles for power - seamlessly incorporates large sections from a previously unsuccessful opera and, as did Rossini before him, Bellini calls for a mezzo-soprano in the male lead role. Vivica Genaux, Romeo in Biondi's production with Europa Galante, is joined by Valentina Farcas as Giulietta and supported by Davide Giusti (Tebaldo), Fabrizio Beggi (Lorenzo) and Ugo Guagliardo (Capellio). In his accompanying notes to this release, Biondi, aspiring to allow listeners to discover new details in and new perspectives on the musical score, writes concerning issues of modern performance of the work, including acoustical details, score markings and tempi choices.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2015
[Biondi's] insistence on intimacy is underpinned by an alert period band - with fortepiano added to the ensemble - and smallish chorus. Instrumentally the reading constantly refreshes listening ears, imbuing Bellini's famously spare orchestration with tender Romanticism, drawing the pacing out of the notes rather than imposing it on the drama.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
There is plenty to please in Europa Galante's performance... [Farcas's] light, silvery soprano lends a fragility to her character that Anna Netrebko doesn't always manage... Biondi certainly draws some exciting sounds from Europa Galante, lively woodwinds and thunderous timpani injecting tangy period-instrument flavours to proceedings.
