“Alla reveals herself as what these days could almost be termed an 'old-fashioned' early music singer, which is to say bell-like in tone and fearless in the use of non-vibrato...she shows impressive agility in the passagework of 'Date serta' but in general she still needs to take greater interpretative command and find a more generous way of shaping phrases.”
