Great reviews for our Siroe

Great review for Neapolitana !

“Brustna Hjärtan framförde ett fint urval napolitansk musik om olycklig kärlek som trots de sorgliga texterna smekte publikens öron och sinnen. En instrumental “Sinfonia a quattro” av Alessandro Scarlatti inledde, spänstigt och dansant spelad med en ekvilibristisk insats av blockflöjtstämman. Den följdes av samme tonsättares minikantat “Ardo é ver per te d’Amore” med mezzosopranen Annastina Malm som solist. (…) Hennes röst är mjuk, fyllig, varm och ändå kraftig och hon är helt enkelt briljant i koloraturpartierna. Det gjorde “Ardo é ver” till en stor upplevelse och ännu högre nådde ensemblen i den litet senare framförda kantaten “Quella pace gradita” av samme tonsättare; ett magnifikt och gripande uttryck för sorgen i ett brustet hjärta.” Per A F Åberg, Uppsala Nya tidning
