5.0 out of 5 stars Haydn at his sparkling best!
This is quite lovely...the Amazon review is spot on. Much better than Orlando Pallando! Bartoli is fabulous but so are the rest, no problems listening to this in my hobby room - or the car, the ultimate test for me! Haven't bothered to read the text suggest you ignore it too and just listen - superb vocal Haydn!

3.0 out of 5 stars Haydn is no Mozart when writing opera
Haydn who reaches celestial heights in his string quartets and symphonies is average in his opera writing, at least, compared with Mozart. The sound of this recording is lovely and Bartoli with her vocal gymnastics is always a joy to listen to. But, we are firmly on terra firma here - no soaring to the heavens. I have struggled to even get to the end of these CDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunned, 27 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Armida (Audio CD)
That's how I feel every time I listen to this Armida; stunning, I wouldn't listen to any other version for the world! it's not just the Concentus musicus sounding superb, as good as ever - and bravo to the Teldec boys - but also Bartoli and Petibon, the latter making her way up to fame, plus greats Widmer and Pregardien: wow!
This is the best Haydn, the one Mozart looked up to. You'll fall in love with Haydn's operas if you take the plunge.
