'Amid typically interesting programming, this concert stood out for its texts: the ensemble Profeti della Quinta's exploration of the work of Salomone Rossi, who composed in both Italian and Hebrew for different constituencies in early Baroque Mantua.'

Profeti della Quinta - Salomone Rossi: Il Mantovano Hebreo - ProgramZeitung

15 March 2014
Alfred Ziltener

'The five singers whose personality-filled voices combine with immense chemistry perform Rossi's polyphonic vocal compositions in a way that is at once exemplary, subtle and stylish. Equally outstanding is the instrumental performance on this album, played with great elan.'

Die fünf Sänger, deren persönlich gefärbte Stimmen sich harmonisch zu einem immer wieder neu abgemischten Gesamtklang verbinden, interpretieren Rossis mehrstimmige Vokal-Kompositionen vorbildlich subtil und stilsicher. Ein ebenso hervorragendes Instrumental-Ensemble spielt dazwischen mit tänzerischem Elan.
