Dullest performance of Alcina I have ever heard, no life, no pace, no excitement, dispite all the star names involved. Christie, who is normally such a fine conductor, here adopts tempi so slow as to be lethagic. He even makes Tornami unexciting. It is all very beautifully sung, but lacks the dramatic impact needed to bring Handel opera to life.
Fleming has a lovely voice but is not dramatic enough for Handel. Graham also has a lovely voice but lacks the power needed for a role originally written for the castrato Senisino. Dessay is not at her best, l have heard her sing much better, in Giulio Cesare, for example.
Try the Hickox recording, or even the old Sutherland recordings!

Cheap download but not even worth it for the poor choice of excerpts :-( Best to buy the whole version on CD instead which you will enjoy for sure!!
