Product description

Product Description

Celebrating their 40th anniversary, Andrew Parrott and his Taverner Consort & Players offer a magnificent recording of the world's first operatic masterpiece, Monteverdi's L'Orfeo. Befitting such an outstanding recording, the 2-CD set is luxuriously packaged with extensive notes and the complete libretto with English translations in a 52-page booklet.

Andrew Parrott and the Taverner Consort & Players celebrate their 40th anniversary with a magnificent recording of the world's first operatic masterpiece, Monteverdi's L'Orfeo. As can be expected from Andrew Parrott, who has been at the centre of the early and baroque music scene for over four decades, his meticulous research results in a performance and stylistic approach that brings a fresh perspective to the myth of love lost and found through the art of music. His scholarship, combined with the collaborative nature of the Taverners, translates into a performance brought to life by the finest singers and instrumentalists in the early music world, including tenor Charles Daniels who is the superb Orfeo.

Personnel: Taverner Consort & Players, Andrew Parrott (conductor)

Critical acclaim for Andrew Parrott and the Taverner Players & Consort:

"The Taverner Consort & Players...at the vanguard of stimulating research-driven concepts interpreted with enthralling musicality." - Gramophone, Critic's Choice 2011

"Exceptional sensitivity and direction...beautifully performed." - BBC Music Magazine

Review

'Delightfully performed...with Charles Daniels and Faye Newton superb as Orfeo and Euridice, and sensual singing and playing, this is the most beguiling Monteverdi opera recording for years.' -- The Times, (Richard Morrison) * * * * *


'The first great operatic masterwork...The singing is first-rate throughout, with choral harmonies of great warmth.' -- The Independent, (Andy Gill) * * * *


'Sumptuous...under Parrott's direction, the first-rate team of instrumentalists further enrich our experience in a shapely reading of a still lovely, still fresh masterpiece.' -- The Sunday Times, (Stephen Pettitt)


'This new version of Monteverdi's Orfeo is thoroughly researched and reimagined, from the opening hubbub and bizarre mixed-pitch fanfares, through to the last swirling recorder decoration on the final chorus...a gentle, lyrical vision of a miraculous opera.'

--The Observer, (Nicholas Kenyon)
