    Great review for Neapolitana !

    “Brustna Hj√§rtan framf√∂rde ett fint urval napolitansk musik om olycklig k√§rlek som trots de sorgliga texterna smekte publikens √∂ron och sinnen. En instrumental “Sinfonia a quattro” av Alessandro Scarlatti inledde, sp√§nstigt och dansant spelad med en ekvilibristisk insats av blockfl√∂jtst√§mman. Den f√∂ljdes av samme tons√§ttares minikantat “Ardo √© ver per te d’Amore” med mezzosopranen Annastina Malm som solist. (…) Hennes r√∂st √§r mjuk, fyllig, varm och √§nd√• kraftig och hon √§r helt enkelt briljant i koloraturpartierna. Det gjorde “Ardo √© ver” till en stor upplevelse och √§nnu h√∂gre n√•dde ensemblen i den litet senare framf√∂rda kantaten “Quella pace gradita” av samme tons√§ttare; ett magnifikt och gripande uttryck f√∂r sorgen i ett brustet hj√§rta.” Per A F √Öberg, Uppsala Nya tidning
