Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, May 2011
Fabio Biondi's live recording of the 1650 Naples edition is an edge-of-your-seat affair, from the clattering concitato strings of the Trojan warriors to the imperial heft of Juno's sackbutts and the sultry chromatics of Dido's laments...[Custer is] a thrilling Cassandra, poised Juno and sly, witty Damigella.

Gramophone Magazine
Claron McFadden makes an excellent Dido, both dignified and vulnerable...Fabio Biondi's band provides good support: I'm sceptical about the inclusion of four trombones, but they sound splendid.
