    THE TIMES

      “Ranging between melting tenderness and boiling rage, Scarlatti’s L’Arianna particularly impresses, with extra drama on hand from Jonathan Cohen’s instrumental ensemble Arcangelo”

    "American mezzo excels in this emotional rollercoaster."

    "Whatever the music’s mood, Lindsey gives 100 percent commitment to every word and note.”

     

    PRESTO MUSIC: 

     "In ravishingly good voice throughout, the American mezzo is fully alive to the abandoned Cretan princess’s every shift in mood on these three very different depictions of Arianna, and the players of Arcangelo match her involvement every step of the way; it’s a rare treat to hear Haydn’s setting in full orchestral clothing, the post-coital languor of the opening minutes and the heroine’s mounting anxiety as she witnesses Teseo’s departure coming across especially vividly."

     

    GRAMOPHONE:

    “...this possessor of a glorious mezzo voice - warm and glowing but without the contralto colours of some of her colleagues, flexible and capable of carrying considerable intensity….”

    “enormously engaging singer.”

     “throughout she shows impressive technical control and agility. More strikingly, though, she brings her stage experience to bear in dramatic readings whose intelligent responses to the differing nuances of these three pieces are what really make the project spark” 

    "Lindsey sings here with delicious intimacy, at times as if she were whispering into our ears”

    “The playing of Arcangelo under Jonathan Cohen is typically high-quality, and often heartbreakingly attendant to the drama.”

    “A lovely programme, expertly performed and full of touching feeling and imagination."
