The Sunday Times reviews Prologue
"Aspromonte’s diamantine timbre, rich, expressive palette and outstanding care for words..."
This “concept album” of 17th-century Italian opera excerpts focuses on the prologues to 11 dramme per musica — including one sacred oratorio, Stefano Landi’s Il Sant’Alessio (1632). Aspromonte’s diamantine timbre, rich, expressive palette and outstanding care for words make her an ideal mistress of ceremonies in Monteverdi’s Orfeo, Caccini’s Euridice, Cavalli’s La Didone and the Landi piece.
