NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON, iTUNES

“Gabriella Di Laccio is a fine dramatic soprano, with a formidable technique, ably displayed in the three Vivaldi arias recorded here. Fernando Cordella sets cracking tempi, to which di Laccio fully responds – the well-known ‘Agitata da due venti’ (track 2) is particularly scintillating, with the da capo suitably embellished.
Musica Antiqua Clio are a new name for me; they come into their own in sinfonias to L’Olimpiade (Vivaldi) and Rinaldo (Handel), which are played with much energy and accuracy (with repeats in the latter meticulously observed). ”

"...charming, tasteful and beautifully executed." - Classical Guitar Magazine

"I have never heard the Sor seguidillas performed so well. I could hear that Gabriella really savoured the meaning of every bit of every text, something which I think is really important. In Jamie’s accompaniments I could hear the ornamentation and I thought the energy of each item of accompaniment, combined with the detail of Gabriella’s words at each same moment, all worked really well. I hope there will be many more occasions for them to perform these songs again.” - Brian Jeffery | Tecla Editions - @ CD Première live performance

"...delightful Ombre Amene puts on the map the richness of this repertoire, which has been sometimes forgotten in modern times." - João Marcos Coelho | Cultura FM
