Description
Bursting with musical fireworks and overflowing with emotion, this array of vocal and instrumental jewels from 17th-century Italy is led by countertenor Drew Minter, who portrayed Tolomeo in Peter Sellars's famous production of Handel's Giulio Cesare and has appeared on more than 40 recordings.

"Minter has the technique to do anything he cares to do and he revels in that. Through songs of Sigismondo d'India, Monteverdi, Giovanni Felice Sances and Domenico Mazzocchi, he startles with his laser-like accuracy, his fearless abandon in tempi and his sheer joy of execution. That's all before he presents 'Rimbombava d'intorno' of Antonio i Cesti. This is a must-own for anyone who even remotely claims to care about singing. For nearly 13 minutes, 'Rimbombava' tells of a clash of wills, brilliantly characterized by the writing for voice and instruments, between Niobe and Latona. The opening phrase, 'A warring echo to the sound of a thousand trumpets resounded through the kingdom of Thebes' sets the tone for a tour-de-force that shows Minter's talents to the fullest. This is nothing short of brilliant in every aspect."Scranton Times
