RECOMMANDE PAR CLASSICA

'A magnificent disc' (BBC Music Magazine)

'An outstanding addition to an exciting series' (Early Music Review)

‘colorful, strongly projected performances … the new disc lives fully up to the quality of its predecessors’ (Fanfare, USA)

‘As always, Robert King leads vigorous and stylish period-instrument support … Hyperion’s estimable series still has quite a few volumes to go, and one can only await them eagerly’ (American Record Guide)

‘The orchestra … is admirably precise. Each of their finely chiselled notes gives substance to sacred inspiration’ (Goldberg)

‘Another well-executed Vivaldi disc, then, from King, who with this series is showing that his good ear for the right singer is matched by innate sympathy for the music’ (Gramophone)

‘beautifully performed … It doesn’t get much better than this’ (Classic FM Magazine)

‘L’orchestre est absolument superbe de précision et de raffinement, et la patte de King se fait sentir partout: on peut ainsi admirer la science du coloris et la gracieuse légèreté de touché, ou tout simplement adorer l’idée même qu’il semble se faire de la sonorité idéale, fruits et fleurs mêlés’ (Classica, France)

‘The performers give stunning vocals … The playing of The King’s Consort is superb’ (AdLib)

Sacred Music, Vol. 8

Volume 8 of Robert King's Vivaldi series brings astonishing vocal pyrotechnics from the brilliant young Norwegian mezzo soprano, Tuva Semmingsen (making her Hyperion début), alongside characteristically expressive performances from soprano Susan Gritton and rich sonorities from Nathalie Stutzmann and the double string orchestra which accompanies her in a particularly fine setting of the Salve Regina.
