'Ormindo' is the third melodrama to have been born of the collaboration between librettist Giovanni Faustini and composer Francesco Cavalli. The plot, following the established code of dramatic convention, tells the story of two pairs of lovers (Erisbe and Ormindo, Sicle and Amida) as they experience reversals of fortune, disguise and a fictive death.
"This vivid performance has plenty of dramatic conviction … This engaging performance by Les Paladins is an important part of a patchy discography." - Gramophone
“I was delighted by Piau's performance in the lengthy prologue ... she sails through the highly ornamented writing with magnificent aplomb. The small instrumental ensemble is fluid, flexible and effective in driving the action in the continuo-only sections ... and delightfully pointed in the short string sinfonias.” - International Record Review
