David J. Baker
Opera News, June 2003

"An unmistakable fondness for the music inspires her to a degree of mastery... that can be quite exhilarating...she makes "Casta Diva" urgently effective through concentrated lyricism, a strong architectural sense and, much of the time, burnished timbre...Overall, though, this is a creditable interpretation that even rises to certain unexpected peaks, such as the high-floating cadenza that erupts in the Act II "Ri tornera" recitative...There is nothing indulgent or slack in the pacing, nothing routine in the instrumental colors of the superb Europa Galante Orchestra, led by its principal violinist and conductor, Fabio Biondi. This ensemble, noted for the Baroque instrumental repertoire, might seem an odd choice for a bel canto opera, but the results say otherwise."
