International Record Review

'Another winner from this enterprising label: a splendid performance and a feast for lovers of bel canto opera... The whole cast, including chorus and orchestra, carry out Pacini's tasks with vigour.

Elizabeth Futral is unfazed by the difficulties that Pacini set... her top notes shining, voice flexible, easily negotiating the runs and roulades... Jennifer Larmore gives her all... The voice has to cover a wide range... the outbursts on high come as easily as the chest notes ... has she done anything better on disc?'
Gramophone

'Jennifer Larmore... sings the difficult role with some depth of vocal colour, is the assured mistress of technique and gives her words a vivid intensity of expression.'
