Notes & Reviews:

The philosophy of the label Ludi Musici is to bring to the attention of the public unusual and varied repertoire from the fields of early music and world music, performed by outstanding artists, accompanied by scholarly and engaging articles, elegant packaging, a substantial and lavishly illustrated booklet, all presented in a sumptuous book/CD format that makes each release an eminently collectable objet d'art that will give its owner hours of pleasure. The new CD La Lucrezia presents Italian cantatas by George Frideric Handel and brings together musicians - contralto Sonia Prina, the ensemble La Sfera Armonica and the conductor Mike Fentross - who are established international artists and offer fresh insights into the repertoire.
