Notes & Reviews:
Naive's Vivaldi Edition is proud to release another of the unknown operas by Antonio Vivaldi. Conducted by one of the masters of baroque opera, Alan Curtis, and gathering an impressive vocal cast (Topi Lehtipuu, Roberta Mameli, Ann Hallenberg, Sonia Prina), Catone in utica marks the 15th opera in the series and is one of the Venetian master's great, late operas.

Alessandro Ciccolini has reconstructed most of the missing music, and the results sound utterly convincing. The cast, all but one of them women (three singing male roles), is impressive of voice and brilliant of technique. Curtis's direction is pacy.
MusicWeb International, 2nd October 2013
Il Complesso Barocco is always well-balanced with excellent ensemble and fine string tone. The music is sensitively and thoughtfully phrased, and the players easily set the mood at the beginning of each aria...This is a truly outstanding recording of one of Vivaldi's finest works.
