'The performance itself is excellent. Laurent Pillot conducts with superb energy and grace... Nazan Fikret’s silver-toned Fiordiligi and Héloïse Mas’s altogether more sensual Dorabella sound good together in their duets, and Fikret’s ‘Come scoglio’ is technically secure and most beautifully done. Best of all, perhaps, is Biagio Pizzuti’s Guglielmo, his voice warm and mature, his characterisation wonderfully subtle: he’s as good as, if not better than, many big-name singers who have recorded the role.'
'The young singers acquit themselves well. Nazan Fikret projects bell-like vocal clarity in ‘Come scoglio’, Héloïse Mas is commendably secure in ‘Smanie implacabili’, and Alexander Sprague performs with buffa-esque panache throughout.'
BBC Music Magazine
'Generally this is an accomplished, musically sensitive performance given by a young cast containing some potential future stars, all of them possessing voices of some quality.'
'Recorded live at 2014 performances by the European Opera Centre, it offers accomplished and youthful performances from its cast, and enjoyably propulsive conducting from Laurent Pillot.'
