Notes & Reviews:

"King directs strong performances of both works, with all the familiar virtues of his sacred music series in evidence, from its bright energy to its shrewdly selected soloists and perfectly judged recordings. He has a rival in 'La Senna' in the form of an excellent recent account for Opus 111 by Rinaldo Alessandrini, who adopts a more sharply etched approach to the work and encourages greater dramatic input from his Italian singers." - Lindsay Kemp, Gramophone

'Robert King teases immaculate phrasing and sensitive playing from the superb King's Consort... Baroque paradise' (Classic FM Magazine)

'This is Vivaldi at his very best, and these crisp, enthusiastic performances recapture the splendour of the original celebrations' (The Daily Telegraph) 'Vivaldi's finest secular vocal work, lifted out of the ordinary by its unusual French accent, plethora of top-notch arias, and lasting not a moment too long. Strongly recommended' (International Record Review)

'They bring punch and gaiety to brilliantly entertaining music' (The Times)

'King directs strong performances of both works, with all the familiar virtues of his sacred music series in evidence, from its bright energy to its shrewdly selected soloists and perfectly judged recordings... Make no mistake, if you are a Vivaldi-lover you will want La Senna Festeggiante' (Gramophone)

'King's performance can be placed straightaway at the summit of these works' discography... The King's Consort quivers with emotion... Superb!' (Goldberg)

'Delightful performances... the feelgood factor that conductor Robert King achieves in La Senna Festeggiante is infectious' (Irish Times)

'It is seldom anything other than a complete pleasure to receive a Hyperion issue and this release certainly maintains their enviable standard... the whole ensemble is its usual alert and musical self. Full marks and thanks to all concerned' (Early Music Review)

'Under Robert King, the British group produces instrumental sonorities simultaneously intimate and lush' (Opera News, USA)

'Robert King leads his ensemble with what can only be called joy, with the Baroque instruments recorded brightly and played with expertise' (ClassicsToday.com)
