Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The duets are exquisitely interpreted and show an excellent feeling for musico-dramatic character: the two singers combine to rapturous effect in "Carol" Dolce! Amico amplesso" (Poro), one of Handel's most erotic and gentle love duets, but they are also fantastic at conveying the unbridled exuberance of love in "Scherzano sul tuo volto" (Rinaldo). The singing is of a miraculous standard throughout, and the performances are consummately insightful and naturalistic. Much of the credit must go to Alessandrini, who directs every accompaniment with perfect dramatic appositeness and natural compassion for Handel's writing.
