Notes & Reviews:

The Times
The music screams for attention on CD, as this superb French studio recording proves. One aria of scorching invention follows another, often bedecked with nimbly illustrative orchestral finery... In the hands of Spinosi's crack team, La fida ninfa is a spectacular baroque rediscovery, and resistance is pointless.

The Guardian
The music is so gorgeous and erotic that your qualms evaporate and you surrender to it, I'm afraid. It would also be hard to imagine it better done than it is here. Jean-Christophe Spinosi's conducting is infinitely pleasurable.

BBC Music Magazine
Vivaldi's score is a ravishing one, offering a rewarding sequence of beguiling arias, duets, a trio and a quartet. Sandrine Piau (Licori) and Ver=nica Cangemi (Morasto) take on the considerable vocal challenges of demanding roles with their usual tonal warmth and bravura, while Marie-Nicole Lemieux (Elpina) provides the necessary emotional contrasts. Topi Lehtipuu is a touchingly melancholic Narete, and Philippe Jaroussky an eloquently, sometimes passionately love-sick Osmino. Altogether a splendid achievement by Jean-Christophe Spinosi and his musicians.

Gramophone Magazine
Those familiar with Ensemble Matheus will expect the immediate plunge into fizzing energyà Much of the singing is marvellous. Sandrine Piau's limpid messa di voce and breathtaking technique in "Selve annose", and her delivery of fiendish coloratura in "Alma oppressa da sorte crudele", are astonishing even for her. "Deh, ti piega", one of Vivaldi's finest arias for the tenor voice, is sung tenderly by Topi Lehtipuu.
