Notes & Reviews:

Penguin Guide
For the jewelled sequences of arias and duets, Hogwood has assembled a near-ideal cast, with Arleen Auger at her most radiant as the queen, Angelica, and Emma Kirkby characteristically bright and fresh...Catherine Robbin assumes the role of Prince Medoro strongly and David Thomas sings stylishly as Zoroastro. This is one of Hogwood's finest achievements on record, taut, dramatic and rhythmically resilient.
