Notes & Reviews:

The Classical Opera Company was founded in 1997 by conductor Ian Page. They specialize in the music of Mozart and his contemporaries, performing with their own period-instrument orchestra, and is rapidly emerging as one of Britain's most exciting and highly regarded young arts organizations. They have attracted considerable critical and public acclaim, not only for the high quality of their performances but also for their imaginative programming and, in particular, the ability to discover and nurture outstanding young singers.

"This is a tantalising taster of Gluck's art. In fairness, I could imagine productions of these operas getting bogged down in the classical conventions of their plots and subjects. But as concert material these arias, recitatives and ensembles have much to offer, and are performed with enough dramatic insight that the absence of staging or narrative context is never felt. The Wigmore Live label has yet again achieved its aim: it has produced a document of a performance to make you wish you'd been there." -Classical-CD-Reviews.com
