Lawrence Devoe
Blu-rayDefinition.com, April 2013

Video director, Tiziano Mancini, does it again! A beautifully shot performance on a cruciate stage platform…minimal props, and stylized 18th century costumes. Colors and details are super.

I am delighted that GB Pergolesi is getting his just desserts in the 21st century, thanks to the sponsors of such performances. Lucky viewers are getting to experience a wealth of musical creation from a composer who departed this life before the age of thirty. This production is the fortunate confluence of great singing, conducting…I would heartily recommend this disc, a world premiere, not only to early opera fans, but to music lovers in general who appreciate how art can be translated across the centuries and made relevant to today’s audiences. © 2013 Blu-rayDefinition.com Read complete review
