"This is one fine disc.."

FANFARE Magazine (USA), july 2014

 

"This is altogether a most enjoyable recording"

Early Music Review (England), February 2009

 

 

"An excellent interpretation by tenor Felix Rienth, whose beautiful timbre, paired with great technical ability, reminds one of the legendary Anthony Rolfe Johnson."

CD magazine "CD Compact" (Barcelona), 12/2008

 

 

"The La Tempesta ensemble from Basel is led by recorder player Muriel Rienth, who performs with clarity and a good sense of phrasing. She blends with the voice, her husband Felix Rienth, so that the two form an inseparable duo."

"Felix Rienth has a light and flexible tenor, always on pitch and giving the music much in the way of fine nuance, making Pepusch come alive."

"This is one fine disc, and not only does Pepusch need to be resurrected beyond the The Beggar’s Opera, this performance does his competent and interesting music full justice."

FANFARE Magazine (New York / USA), july 2014

 

 

"…and has raised the bar very high, thanks to the interpretational qualities in the vocal parts with the beautiful and stylistically confident voice of tenor Felix Rienth…"

Musical journal "Scherzo" (Madrid), 12/2008

 

"…on the present CD, which is the recording premiere of the baroque ensemble La Tempesta Basel, Swiss-Spanish tenor Felix Rienth sings four of Pepusch’s English cantatas with admirable confidence and taste."

  Felix Rienth's Telemann-CD with great critical acclaim in US- and UK-magazines

Telemann's "Tenor Cantatas" by Felix Rienth & La Tempesta Basel earned successful critics in two important US- magazines 2014, such as in "FANFARE" and in "AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE". British "MusicWeb international" also published a fine review about Rienth's CD:

 

"Four cantatas from this series, all for “high” voice, recorder, and continuo, are included on this disc, which is the third to feature tenor Felix Rienth, and his second collaboration with his wife, recorder player Muriel Rochat Rienth."

"Felix Rienth has a nicely resonant tenor that is capable of handling the various affects of the cantatas with ease. He has a good sense of the music’s phrases and contrasts necessary to outline the text."

"...a fine disc..."

"...is certainly worthy of obtaining if you want an excellent performance of representative works."

FANFARE Magazine (New York / USA), august 2014

 

"A further parallel between the two discs is that each presents a singer of real vocal beauty and distinct artistic sensitivies."

"I don’t think I have encountered Rienth before, but I am impressed by the fullness and firm projection of his clear tenor voice, joined with excellent sensitivity to text values. "

 "American Record Guide" (Cincinnati /USA), august 2014

 

 

"The cantatas on the present disc are for high voice which can either be a soprano or a tenor. In this case we hear the Swiss tenor Felix Rienth. Not long ago I reviewed a recording of Spanish songs and I was very enthusiastic about his performances. Here again he shows his qualities, especially in the interpretation of the text. I was particularly satisfied with his performance of the recitatives. That is not that easy, considering their length; apart from the basso continuo the singer is all on his own. He takes the right amount of rhythmic freedom in the interest of expression, and adopts the right accents. He also sings well in the arias..."

"That said, this is a disc which Telemann aficionados will certainly like to have. It is an attractive programme of vocal and instrumental music, and the cantatas in particular are not that familiar. The way their text is interpreted is one of its main assets."
