Notes & Reviews:

Decca Classics presents Baroque Divas, a new album of Baroque arias featuring Vivica Genaux, Mary-Ellen Nesi, Romina Basso and Sonia Prina. The present-day prima donnas follow in the footsteps of acclaimed Baroque divas Cuzzoni and Bordoni, presenting a tongue-in-cheek recital of standout arias for mezzo-soprano and contralto. Accompanied by the superb Greek orchestra Armonia Atenea under conductor George Petrou, the foursome brings to life the rich heritage of Baroque opera.
