Barry Brenesal
Fanfare, January 2014

Janet Baker is in excellent form as Penelope. As a stylist she was ahead of her time, and her voice is heard here at its best. Much the same can be said of Benjamin Luxon, whose rock-solid lower register in particular deserves praise…

The rest of the singing and acting is very good. Standouts are Anne Howells as a vocally regal Minerva…Ian Caley’s sweet-toned Telemachus, Robert Lloyd’s full fathoms’ deep bass, and Annabel Hunt’s affecting Human Frailty.

…this is definitely an Il ritorno to treasure for its sensitive conducting, fine singing and acting, and excellent direction. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review
