Notes & Reviews:

With its outstanding format, its luxurious instrumentation and its numerous gems never to be recycled, Tito Manlio thus remains a brilliant symbol of the Mantuan interlude in Vivaldis professional life: an opera written in a fabled land of plenty.

Gramophone Magazine
Accademia Bizantina play superblyà and Dantone is no less theatrically flamboyant than Sardelli, but sometimes exercises more restraint and elegance. àDantone's singers are often fantastic - especially Ann Hallenberg, whose coloratura is simply gorgeous in Servilia's 'Liquore ingrato' (dreamy, sensual, immaculately phrased and with remarkable intonation). Karina Gauvin gives a masterclass of the Baroque opera soprano's art: versatile technique, flexible expression, beautiful cantabile and stirring passagework.

BBC Music Magazine
This period performance under Ottavio Dantone for Nanve's complete Vivaldi edition à has such a sense of energy and dramatic presence that it is the one to go for now." (The Guardian)
