5.0 out of 5 stars Best available Händel recital!, 10 Mar 2009
This review is from: 'Ah! mio cor' Handel: Arias (Audio CD)
I've been collecting these Händel recitals lately and I think I have all the major ones from the last years by now. My conclusion is that this particular recording is the best of all there is available.
There may be singers of the same calibre among these (Joyce DiDonato, Sandrine Piau, Vesselina Kasarova) but none of the discs is quite as convincing as a whole. In addition to singing, the instrumental playing by Venice Baroque Orchestra is superb. And the most important thing - the choice of pieces - is not as good in any of the other recitals. All the rest do have their "fillers", but here every piece is at least good, and in most cases great. Only the shortest piece "If I had Jubal's lyre" is of minor importance to me.
So, if You're interested in Händel recitals, get this!
