Customer Review

on November 23, 2011
I support this series, but these operas need truly great interpreters. Like the Farnace this recent effort with Savall is another misfire. (Savall, a baritone as Farnace, really?) In my opinion this recording flops due to the lack-lustre performance and inert interpretation. Although the music is OK it is not on the same level of inspiration of say Farnace, L'Olimpiade or Griselda, and at times can feel a bit like second rate Vivaldi. The orchestra - the only outstanding feature of this recording - delivers some just, crisp, exciting playing despite all efforts by Savall and cast to drown out all originality and spontaneity thereby consigning this performance to mediocrity. Unfortunately, this is the only recording of Teuzzone worth having: be warned the dreaded recording of Teuzzone with Manzotti should be avoided at all cost... Where was the whacky Spinosi or the stunning Alessandrini or de Marchi. Come on Naive - get your act together!
