Richard Lawrence
Gramophone, April 2008

Sophie Marin-Degor is superb throughout, singing with bright, forward tone.

Hans Christoph Begemann brings a nervous energy to the role of the villainous Danaus. His handling of the recitatives shows flexibility and dramatic conviction. Christoph Genz sings gracefully but he does not sound so involved. Michael Hofstetter conducts his Ludwigsburg forces with a sure hand: particularly impressive is the last scene, where Salieri depicts the unending torments of Danaus and his daughters in music of a ferocity that recalls Gluck’s Don Juan and anticipates Mozart’s Don Giovanni. © 2008 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
