Johan van Veen
MusicWeb International, January 2017

The vocal parts are sometimes anything but easy. This certainly reflects the standard of the musicians Bassani had at his disposal in Modena. Testo is the smallest part, in that it has only three arias, but these are among the most virtuosic. That part is excellently sung by Mauro Borgioni. …The role of the helmsman Atrebate appears only in the second act; it is given a nice performance by Raffaele Giordani. The symbolic characters Obbedienza (obedience) and Speranza (hope) are scored for soprano; they also sing the few duets. Laura Antonaz and Margherita Rotondi are a perfect match. They both sing their respective parts very well and their voices are just different enough to tell them apart. © 2017 MusicWeb International Read complete review
