5.0 out of 5 stars The girl can sing, 16 Oct 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Handel - Opera Arias / Piau Les Talens Lyriques Rousset (Audio CD)
I had never heard of Sandrine Piau, nor was I particularly familiar with Handel's many opera seria. However, on the strength of reviews here and elsewhere I decided to buy this wonderful CD, and am I glad that I did. The singing is sheer delight from start to finish, assured, secure, brilliant. And the orchestral accompaniment is equal to the diva's sublime performance. For those like me maybe more familiar with Handel's later (English) output, this feast of early Handel is a delight and a joy - what a genius he was. All the works (obviously) have an Italianate feel and all show off the voice to perfection, in a range of different styles and tempi. I could go on and on, but the simplest advice is just to mortgage your house, sell your granny, do whatever it takes to raise the money to buy this sublime CD; you won't regret it for a minute.
