"L'Avventura's performances tend towards the genteel, suggesting decorous courtly soirees rather than raunchy street theatre...These are, in short, charming accounts" (BBC Music)

"Stylistically, the songs are a curious fusion of polite salon music of a somewhat saccharine sentimentality - epitome of the fashionable and graceful Galant style - and the sensual melodies and vigorous dance rhythms of Latino folk, imported from Brazil...L'Avventura's performances tend towards the genteel, suggesting decorous courtly soirees rather than raunchy street theatre...These are, in short, charming accounts" (BBC Music)

"[Seara] blends well with Medeiros and you get accustomed to the strong hint of citrus in their voices...The percussion...consists of a shaker in one number and the cellist tapping her instrument like a drum! Yet that's a major part of the appeal of this 'fusion' disc, melding 'classical' and popular idioms in a manner that recalls Chrstina Pluhar's L'Arpeggiata discs." (International Record Review)
