Richard Lawrence
Gramophone, January 2012

the performance is excellent. Anna Maria Panzarella’s bright soprano is beautifully complemented by the darker tones of Elena Belfiore in the trouser role of Lovinski. Jeremy Ovenden makes an ideal Boleslao, his forthright tenor never less than elegant. Petrou’s fortepiano continuo is as stylish as his conducting. To the artists, congratulations all round. © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

The present performance is one of those rare occasions in which the whole proves greater than the sum of its parts—not entirely a surprise when the conducting is so strong. George Petrou has an excellent feel for tempo and mood. He brings rigor, impulse and spacious flexibility to the music as needed, playing up the contrasts between forceful and lyric elements, allowing some ceremonial grandeur into the Act II chorus of Poles. The orchestral playing is disciplined…the soloists respond to the dramatic setups with immediacy, vitality and natural, communicative Italian inflections… © Opera News Read complete review
