BBC Music Magazine

Christmas 2014

****

“Handel's first opera for London is treated with great dramatic energy. Jacobs can be controversial but alluring singing by Genaux in the title role is worth compromise.”

Early Music Today

December 2014

“The singers are uniformly very good, with Vivica Genaux in the title role and Inga Kalna as the sorceress Armida putting in particularly good performances.”

Presto Classical

Katherine Cooper

August 2014

“Alaskan mezzo Vivica Genaux has plenty of heroic gleam to her tone (sounding more swashbuckling than the sweet-toned David Daniels on Christopher Hogwood's recording) in the title-role, with Miah Persson an affecting Almirena and James Rutherford (now a leading Wagnerian) luxury casting as Argante.”
