 A Truly Rich Experience November 16, 2012 By Jennifer D. (Linden Park, South Australia) See All My Reviews "Dear Arkivmusic.com, Thank you for having the boxed set, Handel's Opera Ariodante, conducted by Nicholas McGegan, available at such a reasonable price, and thanks for the fast delivery. I heard part of Act III on ABC FM Radio one morning recently and was rapt to hear the hauntingly beautiful voice of the late Lorraine Hunt Lieberson. I had not heard of her but made it my business to read as much as I could about her. It was an opportunity simultaneosly to learn more about all the other artists, and the history of the Opera itself It was also a wonderful thing to hear the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra which I saw in concert here in Adelaide last March (2011) during the Adelaide Festival. I searched around then to make a purchase and found Arkivmusic.com to my absolute advantage. Thank you again, Yours sincerely, Jennifer D." Report Abuse
