EDITORS’ NOTES

Twenty years after her Vivaldi Album helped reignite interest in the composer’s fine operas, Bartoli returns to the operatic music. Joined by Ensemble Matheus and Jean-Christophe Spinosi, she spins off the vocal fireworks with technique that’s as impressive as ever—but her voice has developed with age like a fine wine, revealing new layers of warmth. As a survey of Vivaldi’s stage works, this collection is invaluable, but Bartoli sprinkles it with star quality and a palpable love of this ever-inventive music.
