Pers over La Risonanza
We are delighted to award first prize to Fabio Bonizzoni, La Risonanza and Glossa for their recording of Handel’s dialogue cantata Apollo e Dafne. […] this captivating performance by La Risonanza forms a fittingly essential conclusion to Fabio Bonizzoni’s ambitious project to record all of Handel’s Italian-period cantate con stromenti for the Spanish early music label Glossa.
Gramophone Award 2011 / Stanley Sadie Handel Recording Prize 2011 (Händel: Apollo e Dafne)
The overwhelming sense of this recording and that of the whole series is of a musical and dramatic collective – one in which the players are characterful soloists every bit as much as the singers and the vocalists are an integral part of the instrumental fabric. [...] There is a sense of
glory in spontaneous musik-making, just as there is beauty in every bar.
David Vickers, Gramophone, October 2010 (Händel: Apollo e Dafne)
Bonizzoni's direction and the superb playing of La Risonanza are state-of-the-art Handel
