Notes & Reviews:

Soprano Julia Lezhneva returns to virtuosic Baroque music for her second recital on Decca. At 25, she is ideally suited to the soprano arias of the young Handel. The music encompasses the best of Handel's operatic and religious works from his early years: the operas Rodrigo and Agrippina and the oratorios Il Trionfo and La Resurrezione as well as the complete Salve Regina and soprano solo from Dixit Dominus. Lezhneva has the perfect partners in Il Giardino Armonico and Giovanni Antonini.

The Guardian, 12th November 2015
Lezhneva's bell-like soprano is one of the most exciting emerging voices around, and she doesn't disappoint in this recital of early Handel. Surely no instrumentalist's fingers can move faster than Lezhneva's vocal cords; she is able to somersault with the violin, hold her tone straight like the oboe, and then out-trill both of them. So there is lots to admire here - but also lots to love.

The Independent, 12th November 2015
Her long-held notes in "Per dar pregio all'amor mio" are unwavering, while the fluttering coloratura passages separating them are positively birdlike; and the clarity and power of her intonation in "Disserratevi, o porte d'Averno" is quite outstanding. Lezhneva proves equally adept at secular and sacred demands.

New York Times, 24th November 2015
In "Disserratevi, o porte d'Averno," the opening track of this impressive but curiously aloof recording, the young Russian soprano Julia Lezhneva runs circles around the instrumentalist with her pert and fleet coloratura.
