5.0 out of 5 stars Not just fireworks
It is impossible to resist Bartoli in this recital. She is a singer difficult to resist at any time, but this vividly delivered selection of Vivaldi arias is as precious for her contribution as the works are rare. Nothing daunts her: not the rapid spitfire coloratura work or the elegaic poetry of some of the arias. True, some of the runs are aspirated a little too much...

3.0 out of 5 stars Minor stuff
The incomparable Bartoli and her excellent team of instrumentalists dispatch these extracts with customary dazzle and taste but nothing can disguise the thinness of so much of this music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a performance. Cecilia's best record., 4 Nov 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Vivaldi Album (Audio CD)
Vivaldi's operatic work has been highly neglected.Cecilia opens this unkwown world for us and she does that magisterially. With this record she proofs that she is one of the greatest sopranos of our time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite Vivaldi singer, 24 Mar 2010

This review is from: Vivaldi Album (Audio CD)
Read this before buying this cd!!
Buy the cd with Magdalena Kozena and Venice Baroque Orchester instead. You will not be sorrow. Bartoli voice don't fit Vivaldi, Magdalena do.
Forget this cd. Buy Magdalena insted.
I'm a Vivaldi and Baroque lovers.
Bartoli is NOT Baroque, She is better on Haydn and Mozart.
Magdalene is Vivaldi.
