SKU: AV2350 Category:

“At home equally in the passionate music for Almira or Armida, the dramatic depths and heights of Cleopatra and the teasing cynicism of Atalanta… Forsythe displays formidable technique… remarkable range of vocal colour… packs an overwhelming emotional punch. Apollo’s Fire, under the able baton of Jeannette Sorrell, provide exquisitely-judged orchestral support.”
– EARLY MUSIC REVIEW (UK)

“Forsythe is a superb singer with staggering agility. This is a knockout recital by a major American soprano. Sorrell leads the period instruments of Apollo’s Fire… smoothly and expertly.”
– CLASSICS TODAY

“Forsythe’s agile vocal prowess is on full display here in Handel’s depiction of love’s whirlwind…. Impressive technique and emotional persuasion from Amanda Forsythe and Apollo’s Fire.”
– HARMONIA EARLY MUSIC (Indiana Public Media)

“Soprano Forsythe is simply stupendous on this album. Everything she sings in it—arias from Handel’s Alcina, Almira, Ariodante, Giulio Cesare and other operas—is performed with gusto, clarity, and variety… A vocal tour-de-force on every level. Apollo’s Fire and its director, Jeannette Sorrell, are with her every step of the way.”
