Recorded: December 1999, Maison de Radio France, Salle Olivier Messiaen, Paris | Released: 2000 | Label: DG Archiv
Magdalena Kožená, Les Musiciens du Louvre, Marc Minkowski (conductor)

"Kožená is terrific, her slightly quivering but eminently expressive voice supported by captivating theatrical technique. She nails the often difficult vocal passages while really giving us a sense of who is singing and what she is singing about... Other citations for outstanding performances must go to violinist Anton Steck (give this guy a recording contract!) and to Marc Minkowski and his Les Musiciens du Louvre for their ideal accompaniment in some very difficult and tricky music." (David Vernier, ClassicsToday.com)

Riccardo Novaro, Il Complesso Barocco, Alan Curtis (conductor)

". . . this is a highly successful traversal of the opera¿s score. Curtis is, as ever, a remarkably fine stylist who never loses track of the innate theatricality of the score. He is capable of great rhythmic verve and articulation . . . Curtis knows that the exhilaration a listener feels from hearing great singing derives not merely from agility at reckless tempos . . . but from expressiveness, tonal quality, and sustained length of line, as well." (Barry Brenesal, Fanfare)
