Max Emanuel Cencic, Karina Gauvin, Julia Lezhneva, Xavier Sabata, Juan Sancho; Armonia Atenea, George Petrou
'These discs should come with an asbestos slipcase, so incendiary is the performance they convey...Cencic is imperious hot-bloodedness personified...perhaps best of all is Karina Gauvin's utterly disarming Lisaura, her coloratura dazzling, her bright soprano full of personality...Just as thrilling is the visceral playing.'
