Editorial Reviews

Review

There's not a weak link in CPO's exemplary cast. Mezzo-soprano Anne Desler doesn't have Marilyn Horne's commanding presence, and her voice isn't huge, but it's beautifully modulated with an agile coloratura, and she makes a compelling, complex Orlando. The evil sorceress Alcina is a plum of a role, and mezzo-soprano Marina de Lisa makes the most of it. There are no small parts, and the remaining soloists, soprano Nicki Kennedy, mezzo-soprano Lucia Sciannimanico, tenor Luca Dordolo, countertenor Thierry Gregoire, and bass-baritone Martin Kronthaler all perform at the same extraordinarily high standard. Perhaps the biggest surprise for anyone coming to the opera for the first time is the sustained level of Vivaldi's inventiveness. Anyone familiar only with his instrumental concertos may be astonished at his apt vocal writing and characterizations. Vivaldi demonstrates real psychological insight into his characters here, more so here than in his other operas that have been recorded. He doesn't have the dramatic instincts or skills of Monteverdi or Cavalli in constructing a fully convincing operatic architecture, but the individual moments are lovely, varied, and often exploding with melodic and harmonic surprises -- not a characteristic generally associated with the composer. The CD should be of interest to any fan of opera, or of the Baroque (as well as any Vivaldi skeptic). -- AllMusic.com, Stephen Eddins, June 2008
