Gabriella DI LACCIO
Fernando CORDELLA | Musica Antiqua Clio
...“Gabriella Di Laccio is a fine dramatic soprano, with a formidable technique, ably displayed in the three Vivaldi arias recorded here. Fernando Cordella sets cracking tempi, to which di Laccio fully responds – the well-known ‘Agitata da due venti’ (track 2) is particularly scintillating, with the da capo suitably embellished.Musica Antiqua Clio are a new name for me; they come into their own in sinfonias to L’Olimpiade (Vivaldi) and Rinaldo (Handel), which are played with much energy and accuracy (with repeats in the latter meticulously observed).”
- Early Music Review, November 2016
..." An exciting mix of the familiar - Rinaldo, Giulio Cesare - and the less so - Vivaldi's Juditha Thirumphans and L'Olimpiade... the whole dis bubbles with energy and risky coloratura with which Gabriella Di Laccio has no obvious difficulties."
- Lark Reviews, November 2016
“Coloratura soprano Gabriella Di Laccio sings Handel and Vivaldi with great style... this CD is a testimonial of competence and talent."
