Notes & Reviews:

This is Volume 28 of the Foa collection in the Biblioteca Nazionale at Turin contains a collection of superb pieces from Vivaldi's earliest stage works. Many of these works are now lost and are only known to us through these manuscripts. This totally unrecorded and unpublished program is a feast for the ears, ideally performed by a team of singers perfectly at ease with Vivaldian style.

Gramophone Magazine
Of the four excellent singers, it is Paul Agnew who cops the most consistently ungrateful stuff andà he negotiates it all with enormous aplomb. àthe real ear-catcher is Sandrine Piau, who not only has the most memorable musicà but also shows a delightfully fresh manner and a rich vein of effective ornamentation.

BBC Music Magazine
The performances under the stylish direction of Federico Maria Sardelli, who also contributes a dazzling recording obbligato in the concluding aria, are splendid. Sandrine Piau and Ann Hallenberg carry the greater weight of responsibility in arias, many of which call for vocal pyrotechnics and a constantly high level of technical accomplishment. Vivaldi included only four arias for tenor in his 'travel kit' and all of them are included here. Paul Agnew confronts their many challenges admirably and the two from La verita in cimento are among the finest pieces in this selection.

Sunday Times
This is sensational Handel singingà Pure magic.
