NEW CD RELEASE: "Passion and Lament" the Bach Sinfonia. Jennifer is featured as "Filia" in Carissimi's "Historia de Jephte." Dorian RECENT REVIEW: ...soprano Jennifer Ellis Kampani was the standout, singing the role of Cupid with a bright, sweeping tone and effortlessly negotiating the sometimes daunting thickets of coloratura writing in the part. One aria, "D'amor l'accesa face" ("The burning torch of love"), proved to be the dramatic climax of the evening, a bravura showpiece that Ellis Kampani brought home superbly. Scarlatti's "Venere, Amore e Ragione"- Magnificat Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle “…Combine that with a stunning turn by soprano Jennifer Ellis Kampani as Dido... But this opera ultimately belongs to its Dido, and Kampani's Dido was one to remember. Even among these singers, her voice stood out -- lambent, limpid and lovely across her register, and whether loud or soft. She harnessed this voice to a striking reading of her character...Kampani's imaginative phrasing and marvelous control made Dido's famous lament into a window onto her grief-riven soul..” Purcell's Dido and Aeneus, Bach Sinfonia Washington Post
