Little is known about the life of Francisco António de Almeida, but he occupied a central position in Portuguese life in the first half of the 18th century and was able to learn the Italian style in Rome thanks to the ambitions of King João V. The rarely recorded La Spinalba ovvero Il vecchio matto (Spinalba, or the Mad Old Man) is a comic opera which follows the buffa tradition of intrigue and romantic complexities, and is filled with superb cantabile arias as well as a rich variety of original and dramatic orchestral effects. The cast is led by Ana Quintans, a much-in-demand soloist on the early music scene, and the highly regarded Portuguese ensemble Os Músicos do Tejo is directed by its co-founder Marcos Magalhães.
 

 "... the details of this story are actually quite funny and, though long, the whole opera moves quickly. This is helped by the lively, but not rushed, conducting of Magalhães. He is assisted in this by the quick responsiveness of his own orchestra and in no little way by fine singing and vocal acting... This recording is open with good balances, and is to be recommended for anyone curious about the lively suburbs of early opera..."

Alan Swanson - Fanfare - May/June 2013


"...the music is very agreeable, often much more, as are the performances, with no weaknesses among the voices. The recording is good and Keith Anderson’s notes, as usual, are an additional incentive to try this out."
 
Brian Wilson - MusicWeb-International.com - January 2013

"...That making the aquaintence of La Spinaldo has proved suh an enjoyable experience is due in no small measure to a splendid performance. Indeed, in a number of respects it sets standards that could be studied to advantage by more prestigious artists. The direction of marcos Magalhaes in particular is near exemplary, with beautifully judged tempos that are neither forced nor exaggerated, yet are at the same time informed by well sprung rhythms and a truly idiomatic feel for the style. Both the continuo playing and the ornamentation of da apos are an object lesson on how to do such things... Praise, too, to all the Portuguese cast, who are likely to  be unknown to most listners.. All acquit themselves to excellent effect. ... a remarkably successful set that should be heard by anyone with a real interest in 18th century opera..."
