VAL 5286; VALOIS - Francia; Classica vocale
Von Otter imparts to the whole a nostalgic aura while subtly inflecting individual words. The melodic appeal of this piece should not be underestimated... Von Otter s voice blends handsomely... The Ensemble Cappella Mediterranea under Leonardo Garcia Alarcon contributes attractively detailed accompaniments.... Is especially engaging. --George Loomis, Opera March 2013

this new recording of early Italian opera pieces performed together
with the Capella Mediterranea ensemble under the direction of conductor
Leonardo Garcia Alarcon. The innate warmth and clarity of Ms Von Otter's
dazzling voice captures the melancholy magic of this haunting music to
a tee. Although from different works there is wonderful coherence in the
pieces chosen for this project. From the heart breaking rendition of 'Si
Dolce e 'l Tormento' from Monteverdi's Madrigals : Book Nine; through the
boisterous (and startlingly modern!) peasant dance rhythms of 'Squarciato
Appena Havea' by Francesco Provenzale and the deeply affecting intimacy
and sparkling dramatic highlights of 'Doriclea Lamento' from the opera
'Doriclea' by Pier Francesco Cavalli, we are left with no doubt with regard
to Ms Von Otter's consummate grasp of this beautiful music's inner light.
Two duets with soprano Sandrine Piau : 'Pur Ti Miro' from Monteverdi's
'L 'Incoronazione Di Poppea' and 'Dolcissimi Baci' (Sweet kisses indeed!);
a further duet with alto Susanna Sundberg (also on splendid form) on
'Lamento Della Regina Di Svezia' from Luigi Rossi's ''Un Ferito Cavaliero
Di Polve' and three instrumental interludes from 'Elena' by Pier Francesco
Cavalli, also make for a varied and emotionally rewarding listening experience.
Truly glorious echoes from a golden age.

Otter covers many pieces of early Baroque music that personally, I had not experienced until now. With the help of Sandrine Piau, this album is nothing short of beautiful.
