“… the operetta is also full of ensembles, and the finales to Acts 1 and 2 are significant large-scale, complex multi-sectional structure where Strauss combines melodic felicity with plenty of variety and interest. And there are plenty of good tunes here, witty orchestration and a nice feel for structure in the larger pieces. When all is said and done, Blindekuh is a charmingly fizzy pastoral comedy, with a plot that has its fair degree of barminess. Yet, the music is full of delights and on this disc Salvi and his forces make you wonder why the opera has languished for so long.”

“… This set has a lovely ability to look beyond both the well-known songs and beyond the conventional view of them. Martineau and the four singers all bring a thoughtfulness and profound consideration to the performances, we very rarely simply luxuriate in the simple beauty of sound. And whilst there is plenty of that, each song is a profoundly expressive microcosm, bringing alive the composer's complex and fascinating interior life.” *****

“Albums that sidestep familiar repertoire always deserve attention. … The ensemble [Sestina], directed by Peter Whelan, won an Olivier award earlier this year for their stylish production of Vivaldi’s Bajazet at the Linbury theatre, Royal Opera House. Their skill and vigour, with lively singing from Sestina and soloists, shines out here in music by Henry Purcell and the Hungarian composer Johann Sigismund Cousser … Their ode Great Parent, Hail!, full of wordplay, solos, duets, choruses and a beautiful “symphony”, is a highlight. Cousser’s “serenata” for Queen Anne, The Universal Applause of Mount Parnassus, is an engaging novelty, with Lillibulero played on solo lute a wistful bonus.”

“… this box can be strongly recommended, given that the recordings of 2 to 6 are amongst the very best available.  Here we have proof of VW’s enormous generosity of spirit, his exuberance and warmness of heart, and the nobility which still speaks with blazing clarity to all of us today.”
