“Luciana Serra is known for her vocal acrobatics; her name has been mentioned in the same breath as Joan Sutherland’s. She is superb from the off. Track 4 of disc 1 (‘Bellàh, capretta mata’) shows her at her best. She has to negotiate long cantabile lines – which she does excellently, even if the recording balance distances her from time to time – and virtuoso passages in which she has to match a nimble flautist … and she does. Her famous second act ‘Shadow Song’ – here at the beginning of the second disc – positively sparkles; small wonder it brings the house down. Again, the voice/flute interaction is a thing of wonder. If there is one vocal reason to obtain this set, it is Serra. The other main characters are more than adequate. Max Cosotti is an ardent Corentino and Angelo Romero is an extremely musical Hoël. Romero’s talents are fully showcased in the last act.”
