Notes & Reviews:

"These singers throw themselves into their roles and their emotional situations with sometimes ferocious zest. This quality may partly have been spurred by Spinosi, whose period-instrument band is very much of the in-your-face, take-no-prisoners style of playing. But if its playing is sometimes brusque or even harsh, that reflects the propulsive energy of the conductor's direction." - Barker, ARG

"The opera cannot be called comic, but there are wonderfully funny moments of overwrought behavior. The feelings expressed in the arias (24 of them, all da capo, all relatively brief)--jealousy, rage, sarcasm, love, disappointment--are vivid, bordering on ferocious, and they make the characters' strong personalities very clear... Sonics are just about perfect--clean, clear, and crisp. This opera and recording offer spectacular surprises." -ClassicsToday (10/10)
