"Sittande vid stereon svävar jag in i ett parallellt, hisnande vackert universum."

"Not to make it sound like a warm bath, but this really is one of those recital discs to immerse yourself in. There's a sense of luxury to the whole thing, in the splendour of Concerto Italiano's playing, in Rinaldo Alessandrini's long-view pacing, above all in two of the richest voices before the public today. Sandrine Piau and Sara Mingardo are a match made in Handelian heaven. The former's creamy soprano blends superbly with her dark yet receptive contralto colleague. At times they almost seem to mesh, as if into one instrument. And yet there is never any doubt that these are two highly individual and intelligent artists. Sample the alertness of the back-and-forth in the Orlando recitative, or the reflectiveness that follows in the duet. Or the way they complement each other temperamentally as well as vocally in the Ottone piece that closes the recital. In fact, jump in almost anywhere and you'll hear drama that pulses with life and just happens to be incredibly well sung to boot. This is the sort of project that could have, on the one hand, all too easily become a superficial showpiece for canary fanciers, or on the other, overwrought in its earnestness to make dramatic effects quickly. Alessandrini, no less than his soloists, will have none of either. All here sounds natural, truthful, genuine. Simply magnificent."

- The meeting of two voices

- A heavenly coloratura for the lightness and the spine, a velvet contralto for the unctuousness and the spice

- 2009 Haendel's year for the 250th anniversary of his death

- Rinaldo Alessandrini : one of the absolute specialists of this repertory
