Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Deborah is often described as a "pasticcio" piece because Handel plundered many of his previous works for material. Thus the opening of the much-loved Dixit dominus becomes the chorus "See the proud chief" (performed here at a breathlessly exciting pace); the opening of the Coronation Anthem The King Shall Rejoice becomes "The great King of Kings" which closes Part II; and even "La Rejouissance" from the Music for the Royal Fireworks makes an appearance in Part III. Handel's genius is such that with a little editing and tweaking it all sounds unforced and entirely to the manor born. Joachim Carlos Martini responds to the score's exuberance with lively conducting and upbeat tempi, which give the whole package a young, fresh feel. Also the fact that this is a live recording adds something of a frisson to the proceedings. The downside is that the performance space (the Kloster Eberbach) sounds like a large bathroom, and the microphones aren't placed with much sensitivity around the orchestra and soloists. However countertenor Lawrence Zazzo is on fine form as the noble Barak, and Ewa Wolak is a barnstorming malevolent presence as the boastful Sisera. Unfortunately the other soloists are variable, and the choir more enthusiastic than accurate but overall, this is a reasonable budget buy. --Warwick Thompson

This rarely-heard masterpiece receives a stunning performance from all concerned, and fully deserves to become a cult trio of Cds.

Early Handel Oratorio well performed 20 Sept. 2004
By R. Rockwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Even though this was one of his first oratorios composed when he was in his earlt twenties, Handel's Deborah is truly a masterpiece. Handel's best oratorios contain a dramatic tension from beginning to end. The team assembled by Naxos do an incredible job from soloists to chorus.

I do own a few oratorios by the King Consort who have released the only other Deborah availale. Since I have a limited budget I have not listen to that version, but I can't imagine that it could be any better.

If you love Handel and want to explore his early works you will not be disappointed with this well executed masterpiece.
