Vivaldi: Orlando Furioso

Editorial Reviews

Gramophone - David Vickers
This is a magnificent achievement, and one of the pinnacles of Opus 111's monumental Vivaldi Edition. If Vivaldi needs a champion to more firmly establish his credentials as a fully-fledged opera composer, then this recording is it.
BBC Music Magazine
An outstanding achievement all round.
San Francisco Chronicle - Steven Winn

San Francisco Chronicle - Steven Winn
Orlando Furioso, the latest offering in Naive's admirable Vivaldi Edition, is a rewarding mid-career example of the composer's operatic gifts. Insinuating melodies, voluptuous ornamentation, churning orchestral passages, vigorous short choruses and beguiling lyrical stretches create the propulsive high contrasts in this treatment of Ariosto's eventful poem.... Jean-Christophe Spinosi elicits a spirited reading of the score from his Ensemble Matheus.
Courier-Post - Robert Baxter
Conductor Jean-Christophe Spinosi and the Ensemble Matheus provide vivid, strongly characterized accompaniments for the international cast. As Alcina and Orlando, American mezzo-soprano Jennifer Larmore and Canadian contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux sing boldly and beautifully.... Mezzo Ann Hallenberg is a standout among a fine supporting cast fluent in baroque style.
Dallas Morning News - Lawson Taitte
[Grade: A] This might just be the best recording ever made of a Baroque opera.
Classic FM Magazine - Warwick Thompson
If the coming 50 releases [in the Vivaldi Edition] are anything like this stunning recording of Orlando furioso I’d suggest that you immediately prepare some space on your CD shelves.... An outstanding achievement.
