Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After a long hiatus between the second and third instalments of Marco Vitale's project to record all of Handel's cantatas, everything seems to be back on track with this fourth disc appearing quite soon after the third. After that somewhat disappointing third release, the quality of the performance seems to have bounced back noticeably too, with soprano Stefanie True's vocals returning to the standard of the first couple. However I'm still struggling to like soprano Klaartje van Veldhoven who made her debut in this series on the previous offering. She is still a bit substandard alongside True in "Sans y penser" (Handel's only French cantata), though to be fair she is quite considerably better in her solo cantata here "Pensieri notturni di Filli".

The five cantatas presented on this disc all originate from Handel's Italian period, and include three (the aforementioned "Sans y penser", "Clori, vezzosa Clori" & "Lungi n'andò Fileno") which were sadly not featured as part of Fabio Bonizzoni's stunning seven disc set of Handel's Italian period cantatas. So the standard of Vitale's discs may not be as stratospheric as Bonizzoni's, but it's overall a reasonable value series thus far.

Programme:

HWV92 "Clori, mia bella Clori" (soloist True)
HWV155 "Sans y penser" (soloists True, van Veldhoven)
HWV95 "Clori, vezzosa Clori" (soloist True)
HWV134 "Pensieri notturni di Filli (Nel dolce dell'oblio)" (soloist van Veldhoven)
HWV128 "Lungi n'andò Fileno" (soloist True)

5.0 out of 5 stars More Handel Gems 24 Mar. 2012
By Paul Van de Water - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Brilliant's series of recordings of Handel's cantatas goes from strength to strength. In my review of Handel: Complete Cantata, Volume 2, I provided information about the recording label, the artists, and the presentation. All of that still applies--particularly my enthusiasm for Ellen Harris's notes.

The third disc Handel: Complete Cantatas, Vol. 3 exceeds Denys Darlow's fine recording of Aminta e Filide (HWV 83), dating from 1984. (There's another directed by Bonizzoni on Glossa.)

This fourth disc includes three previously unavailable continuo cantatas--Clori, vezzosa Clori (HWV 95), Lungi n'ando Fileno (HWV 128), and Sans y penser (HWV 155). It also contains two familiar accompanied cantatas--Nel dolce dell'oblio (HWV 134), with recorder, and Clori, mia bella Clori (HWV 92), with violins.

Canadian soprano Stephanie True, who shone in the previous volumes, excels again in HWV 92, 95, and 128. Dutch soprano Klaartje van Veldhoven performs the frequently recorded Nel dolce dell'oblio and holds her own against stiff competition from Invernizzi on Glossa. And the two share the honors in Sans y penser, Handel's only cantata in French. Once more we owe a great debt to the artists and to Brilliant for expanding the Handel discography with this fine recording.

Addendum (September 12, 2013): This series is now continuing on the Ayros label. See my review of the first CD [Cantatas 1].
