Notes & Reviews:

This recording gathers vocal gems from the Italian baroque and some of the most renowned artists in this repertoire: Il Giardino Armonico's co-founder Luca Pianca, soprano Roberta Invernizzi and contralto Sonia Prina. This intense and heart-stretching program on love and sadness gathers a series of amazing duets of Monteverdi, Handel, Marcello, Scarlatti, Lotti and others.

The Guardian, 1st August 2013
Invernizzi and Prina are so accomplished in this repertoire.

Sunday Times, 4th August 2013
The best known is Pur ti miro...now ascribed to one of the great man's assistants, but the authentic Interotte speranze, Mentre vaga angioletta and Vorrei baciarti benefit from the individuality and the sensual blend of these singers.

The Observer, 18th August 2013
Sonia Prina and soprano Roberta Invernizzi, both stars of the current baroque scene, are beautifully exact partners, their clashing dissonances as perfectly tuned as their harmonious counterpoint.

Classical Music, September 2013
An imaginative, engaging programme that goes from Monteverdi at his most austere to Handel at his Italian brightest...Invernizzi and Prina revel in the range and colour of the works in hand, and are rewarded with benchmark recorded sound and presentation.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2013
Throughout the disc the continuo battery of Ensemble Claudiana provides colourful support...But the disc belongs to Invernizzi and Prina, who aptly cap a feast of glorious Handelian virtuosity.
