5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best baroque opera recordings of all time, 29 Aug 2008

This review is from: Graun: Cleopatra et Cesare (Audio CD)
The story is the same as that of Handel's opera of the same name. The selection of voices and voice timbres and range is superb. Janet Williams as Cleopatra is stunning, as is Robert Gambill as Tolomeo and Jeffrey Francis as Lentulo. Lynne Dawson sings beautifully though lacking a bit of dramatic clout. Iris Vermillion whose voice is a little rough compensates and gives a spectular performance with her dramatic authority in the role of Cesare. The orchestral playing and conducting are splendid especially the harpsichord playing which is spectacular. This is one of the all time best opera recordings and will become one of your favorites if you love baroque opera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Graun - Cleopatra & Cesare, 13 Jan 2011
This review is from: Graun: Cleopatra et Cesare (Audio CD)
Excellent service from the vendor, even though the product was delayed in shipping due to the Christmas season. The vendor really cared, although it was not his responsibility. The CD itself is marvelous.
