Notes & Reviews:

Di furore! Fury, grief, jubilation: the listener goes through every emotional state in the motet In furore. Sandrine Piau has found the right partner in Ottavio Dantone, a harpsichordist and conductor who is beginning to set his own standards of excellence in Baroque interpretation: the result is a CD with a multitude of colours. A milestone in the Vivaldi Edition, of which this is the 25th title - out of 100!

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
'In furore is the ideal score for any soprano who's spoiling for a fight - with herself!' So says Sandrine Piau in the booklet, and she could have added that it also makes a superb opener for any disc. The motet could have been made for a singer of Piau's avian lightness and agility, and sure enough she throws herself into it, bringing to it her usual precision and, with a technique that enables plenty of dazzling extra ornaments, winning personality.

With her energy and imagination, Piau manages to find contrast in the work, not just between its fearful opening movement and more penitential second, but on a local scale as well. In the Laudate pueri, an altogether more urbane offering, she sings with poise, expressive sophistication and tonal power. Piau's quickness of mind is matched by the orchestral playing of Accademia Bizantina, whose sound, typically for an Italian group, is deliciously grainy, allowing for an alert and intense approach to interpretative detail. Thus they never fail to enhance the mood of a particular number, a skill which they also put to good use in the disc's three orchestral works..
