5.0 out of 5 stars Almost the best, 23 Sep 2009

This is almost, but not quite, the best version of Dido I have heard; excellent performances by Veronique Gens as Dido and Sophie Marin-Degor as Belinda and expertly directed by William Christie, finely balancing vivacity with gravity as required.

Just edging this out is the Hogwood production, which I would choose as my sole copy if forced to, but wouldn't want to be without either.

Word of warning: if you buy the MP3 download version as I did, the track divisions are placed a little oddly to say the least and will result in ugly gaps in continuity unless you set the gap to zero.

This review is from: Purcell : Dido & Aeneas (MP3 Download)
This was ny first time to an extended hightlights version of D & A having only really known the most famous piece - the Lament. The download was tremendous value and was worth trying sight unseen as it were.I was not disappointd, the recording is high quality and the performances, both singing and playing,t if no first rate were not far off.
