The virtuoso Venetian diva of the 17th century, Barbara Strozzi, Monteverdi's heir, journeys the passions of the soul through a darling mosaic of styles and rhythms.

What the press says :
“The emotional tension is incredible ; so is a recording conjured from the warm acoustic of Ambronay Abbey in France. If your blood doesn’t race during the opener by the madrigal master Monteverdi, see a doctor immediately.” The Times, 21 November 2009
