Notes and Editorial Reviews



Back on top form, Curtis's forces produce the perfect Handel opera set

It’s hard to disagree with reviewer David Vickers, who calls this “all in all a perfect Handel opera recording.” The cast is tremendous (Karina Gauvin offering a stunning combination of force and grace) and conductor Alan Curtis realises all the richness in the score without ever driving too hard.

-- Gramophone [7/2008]
