Press Reviews

This intriguing disc of virtuosic vocal music by Venetian composer Barbara Strozzi is an important release. Despite being the most successful female composer of her time, Strozzi’s vast output of vocal music has not hitherto had the recognition it deserves from the CD industry…. The vocal work on this disc is uniformly excellent, with each singer given the chance to display truly virtuosic technique…. This disc comes highly recommended… as an expertly and intelligently sung recording of some very fine music.

The singers have a good sense of style: they also produce an exquisite and well balanced sound, which is deployed with all the flexibility necessary to exploit all the musical capital from Strozzi’s emotionally wide ranging language.
The Gramophone

There are some uncannily beautiful moments from all the performers and the blend of the three voices is excellent
Early Music Review

The solos duets and trios here are ravishing: so too are the performances. If you want an early Christmas present, this is the CD to go for.
