 Review from www.abc.net.au


  A sensational interpretation of Vivaldi

In recent years German soprano Simone Kermes has been the sensation of press and public with her Vivaldi recordings. Here is a single CD compilation of highlights from her two solo Vivaldi recordings on Archiv Produktion, Amor Sacro and Amor Profano.

Of Amor Profano, Opera magazine wrote: “Kermes’s distinctive voice has an appealing smoothness and roundedness of tone…an intensely dramatic personality at work…super-precise coloratura…Kermes’s technique is something to marvel at”; and Gramophone summed up: Amor profano is a role model of how a Baroque opera arias recital disc should be put together – with proper research, affection for the composer, and top-notch artistry”.

Equally brilliant at Vivaldi is the Venice Baroque Orchestra directed by Andrea Marcon who also recorded a number of Vivaldi recordings for Archiv. They are a perfect accompaniment for Simone Kermes.
