Format: Audio CD
A real treat. Wonderful music, wonderfully sung and played. All the cast are superb; and the performance fizzes with energy and panache. The conductor, Spinosi, has previously been criticised for abrupt and extreme changes in dynamics; but on this occasion he shows a genuine mastery of the idiom and provides a consistently sympathetic accompaniment. His band is on top form. A must for all lovers of Vivaldi

25 of 26 people found the following review helpful By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Jan. 2007
Format: Audio CD
I am not generally a major fan of baroque opera -- call me a Philistine! -- but I've been hooked by the spate of releases from the French label, Naïve, which, when it is finished, will present in 100 CD sets all of Vivaldi's works found in his music library at his death. And this includes all 49 of his operas! I was intrigued by this one because it tells the tale of 'patient Griselda' whose story comes down to us from folklore as retold in Bocaccio's Decameron and, more familiarly, in the 'Clerk's Tale' from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. It's the story of a wife who displays incredible patience in the face of the many cruel tests of her loyalty that her husband puts her through. No need to retell that story here -- except to say that Vivaldi and his librettist Apostolo Zeno (with some revision by Carlo Goldoni) soften the villainy of the husband, Gualtiero.

The music Vivaldi provides is really more a showcase for some incredible singing and abundantly satisfying music. And that is in this performance in abundance. There is some almost superhuman coloratura on display here, and there is not a single weak performance. Outstanding in the title role is the rising Canadian mezzo (although she's listed in the booklet as a contralto), Marie-Nicole Lemieux. I've been quite impressed by her recordings, mostly on Canadian labels, with the exception of the one that featured music by Brahms. Lemieux is definitely more suited to baroque music and here she is simply sensational. Her 'Brami le mie catene' in Act I is a real showpiece with sudden starts and stops, dramatic outbursts alternating with meltingly beautiful cantilena. Just as fine is her Act II scena, 'No, non tanto crudeltà'. Argentinian soprano Verónica Cangemi as Griselda's long-lost daughter Constanza is equally superb.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Beautiful bass line, which beautifully carries along the action with only the Theorbo - a jewel! Marie- Nicole Lemieux, in the title role of Grisleda is perfect with a voice absolutely perfect for the part. Ottone the knight in love with Griselda is the archetype of the castrato, pushed to insane limits by the vocal range and breath of Simone Kermes. The role of Gualtiero, king of Thessaly and father of Costanza, is a model of a Vivaldi tenor sung by a delicate, elegant and agile Stefano Ferrari , with a beautiful natural timbre. Costanza , sung by Veronica Cangemi , is thrilling - a wonder of lightness and elegance. Roberto, Costanza’s lover is sung by the divinely alto castrato Philippe Jaroussky , a dream of fullness and velvety colour and sound . Lestyn Davies is a beautiful and colorful Corrado . This recording won a Diapson D’Or award. In conclusion: PERFECTION!
