Notes & Reviews:

"Savall has assembled a strong cast. Furio Zanasi (Pharnaces) has a powerful, clearly focused voice which conveys his vengeful character with robust vigor. Adriana Fernandez (Berenice) projects her hatred of Pharnaces with chilling venom...but it is Gilades, Berenice's captain, to whom Vivaldi has given one of the most beguiling arias in the opera. Cinzia Forte sings 'Scherza l'aura lusinghiera' with clear, youthful-voiced charm, stealing the show for me." ***** -Nicholas Anderson, BBC

"Headed by Savall at his most inspired, Le Concert des Nations is, as ever, truly outstanding. In this superb collaboration with the Chorus of La Zarzuela, the intensity of performance is sustained over the almost three hours of music and action on stage in a display of the characteristic richness of timbre and rhythmic power that we have come to associate with this ensemble. This is a spectacular and indispensable recording." -CD Classics
