Notes & Reviews:

Admired for her remarkable creative imagination and exemplary musicianship, soprano Patricia Petibon, in her newest album for Deutsche Grammophon, offers a treasure-trove of fascinating Baroque curiosities guaranteed to enthrall both the Baroque aficionado and the casual listener.

Nouveau Monde is conceived as a journey from the Old to the New World, a spell-binding collection of arias songs and pieces from European composers (Charpentier, Handel, Rameau, Purcell) that testify to their composer's fascination with the exoticism of recently-discovered lands, as well as South American folksongs which boast exceptional rhythmic energy and color.

Spectacularly accompanied by the La Cetra Baroque under the excelling direction of Andrea Marcon - who also stands out as a Baroque organist and harpsichordist - Patricia enchants our senses with a mélange of 17th - century arias and folk songs from England, France, Spain, and Latin America.

Some of the numbers feature guest instrumentalist whose additions of unique and surprising strokes of color enhance Patricia Petibon's revelations of the expressivity of this past era.

As a follow-up to her best-selling Rosso and Melancolia albums, Patricia Petibon's 2012 release is guaranteed to be one of the most popular and sought after Baroque releases of the year.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
'Nouveau Monde' is a tightly thought-through and arranged and compelling programme, a tour de force for its performer/compiler, most atmospherically recorded. Compulsive, repeatable listening.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2012
Conquest is one theme, confession another; the whole a breakneck A-Z of Baroque song from airs de cours to zarzuela.
