Grammy 2016 Awards

Best Opera Recording and Best Engineered Album (Classical)
GRAMMY nominee
Boston Baroque

(Martin Pearlman, Jennifer Rivera, Fernando Guimarães & Boston Baroque)  

Classical Album of the Week: 'The strength of this issue is in its strong, youthful cast. The Penelope of Jennifer Rivera...with a limpid low mezzo of comparable beauty and expressive power, while Fernando Guimaraes's Ulysses is heartbreaking...' The Sunday Times  

'...undoubted integrity and many sterling assets. It unquestionably earns a place among the better recordings of the opera.' Early Music Review

'Mezzo Jennifer Rivera is a lovely, modest Penelope and her voice is beautiful, much in the Janet Baker mold… Fernando Guimarães sings Ulisse with feeling, intelligence, and an appealing light baritone–based on their vocal colorations, this Ulisse and Penelope make a fine couple.' ClassicsToday.com

'The most impressive performance comes from Aaron Sheehan whose light lyrical voice delivers the music with utter naturalness.' 
BBC Music Magazine

 

Portuguese tenor and Baroque specialist Fernando Guimarães stars in the title role, alongside the internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Jennifer Rivera as his loving wife Penelope in this GRAMMY-nominated recording. Il ritorno d'Ulisse was a relatively recent discovery, but following its authentication in the 1950s and revivals in Vienna and Glyndebourne, the opera has enjoyed new found popularity. Martin Pearlman's new performing version benefits from the same attention to detail that has ensured his reputation as a leading champion of period performance. His highly considered approach to all aspects of the score and performance ensure this version is true to Monteverdi's original vision. With a libretto drawing from Homer's Odyssey, Il ritorno d'Ulisse is a riveting human drama with an enviable cast.
