John W Barker
American Record Guide, September 2016

All singers are fully up to the often extremely virtuosic dimensions of their music, and there are fine ventures in embellishment. In all that they have doubtless much stimulation from Fasolis, who conducts with truly propulsive power and notable insight. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide



Bill White
Fanfare, September 2016

This recording brings with it some fine singing from a not so well-known cast headed by Italian mezzo-soprano Sonia Ganassi. …The Rodelinda role provides much of the heavy lifting in this opera, with seven arias and one duetto to be sung. Ganassi sings it all well, after eliminating a bit of early fog from her voice. She has a vocal range that lies somewhere around the borders between mezzo and true soprano. …Singing the part of Rodelinda’s presumed dead husband, Bertrado, countertenor Franco Fagioli performs magnificently. …The other four roles are sung by a contralto, alto countertenor, tenor, and bass. All are sung well here by this cast… © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review
