Notes & Reviews:

Although Flavio, premiered in 1723, deals with motives of love, honour, and duty, the tone is domestic, with less emphasis than in many other operas on political or military changes of fortune. Though hardly a comedy, it does seem to move to a more detached view of human interactions. The action is set in Lombardy during the dark ages: the stratagem of sending unwanted individuals away to govern Britain - striking overtones of honour and punishment - would no doubt have been taken humorously by the London audiences.

"Flavio has some fine music, but is rarely performed...The aria 'Amante stravagante'...nicely displays [Joshua's] bright, silvery tone...The vocal star is Renata Pokupic as Vitige. Her 'Non credo' aria is beautifully shaped." -BBC Music Magazine ***

"This new recording is exemplary, with elegant, sprightly playing by the Early Opera Company, beautifully paced tempos set by conductor Christian Curnyn, and golden-age singing from Tim Mead, Iestyn Davies, Rosemary Joshua and Andrew Foster-Williams." -The Telegraph *****

"Iestyn Davies's plangent, fiery Guido and Rosemary Joshua's diamantine Emilia could hardly be bettered...Thomas Walker and Andrew Foster-Williams are stalwarts as the warring patriarchs." -Sunday Times ***

"Joshua's gleaming, agile soprano remains on pristine form for such an experienced Handelian and she's a consistent pleasure...Davies's Guido...is a major achievement for the young countertenor in his first starring role on disc...dashing off the coloratura volleys of 'Rompo i lacci' with insouciant ease and consistently pearly tone" -International Record Review

"Curnyn and his spruce period band finely catch the tone and tinta of his delectable opera. Tempi - mobile but never frenetic - are aptly chosen, rhythms buoyant...The singers, many of them Curnyn regulars, dispatch their arias with fine Handelian stye and spirit, and, crucially, bring real theatrical vitality to their recitative exchanges." -Gramophone Magazine
