La Lira di Orfeo
ConductorFederico Maria Sardelli
‘…The staging conceived by Gianluca Falaschi, on his debut as a director (he also signs sets and costumes) renders the moods of the characters very well and describes the places of the narration with touches of fantasy…The fulcrum of the action is the music of Porpora which in Federico Maria Sardelli finds an interpreter of great depth… the orchestra La Lira di Orfeo supports him with expressive fullness, revealing the timbre peculiarities…’ – Avvenire
‘…As leader of the Baroque ensemble La Lira di Orfeo, Federico Maria Sardelli is effective in highlighting the details and the extreme refinement of a score rich in embellishments, real embroideries such as the solo of the cello together with double bass, theorbo and harpsichord. At the end, long applause for everyone…’ – Buonasera Taranto
‘Conductor Federico Maria Sardelli, a Baroque specialist, offered a lively and refined reading of the tense score... Paola Valentina Molinari beautifully sang Medoro’s arias, while Ekaterina Bakanova (Angelica) was striking for her expressiveness and coloratura capabilities. Teresa Iervolino, the evening's prima donna, was a perfect Orlando, poetic and tormented, with a rich texture, always self-assured and clear.’ – Bachtrack
