CPO presents a new release from the Boston Early Music Festival. These two baroque operas, composed by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, which prove to be both complex and highly entertaining.

 "... Highly recommended."

Barry Brenesal - Fanfare - November/December 2014

               Editor’s Choice - Opera

 "... Both works include cheerful ouvertures and diverting entrées (dances), prompting O’Dette and Stubbs to employ larger and more varied resources to enhance theor characterisation, though the dramatic action is accompanied mainly by the continuo instruments... Bravo!"

Julie Anne Sadie - Gramophone magazine - September 2014

"...All is sung and played with stylish assurance and expresive sensibility under directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs."  *****

Nicholas Anderson - Early Music Today magazine - September-November 2014

                         ***** (Exceptional album)

Claudio Bolzan - Musica magazine (Italy) - July/August 2014

"...The cast all sound well versed in the idiom, but what impresses above all, in this as in othe Boston performances, is not individual achievements but the strong sense of collective purpose and understanding that propels the project..."

David Hansell - Early Music Review - 160  - June 2014

                                   Music ***** (Outstanding)          Sound ***** (Outstanding)
