“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). ”
