outstanding quality in point of vieuw technic and artistic interpretation, 8 Jun. 2009
the oratorium :Belshazzar conducted by trevor Pinnock and performed by the English Concert is a really wonderful experience...
the recording has a full and great sound that impressionnates me
deeply ...Handel's Oratorium in itself is a worldwide known and well appreciated masterwork ---the first movement inspired Ludwig van Beethoven ,who was a great and devoted admirer himself of Handel's works, to the main theme of the slow movement of his "3rd Symphonia Eroica"...but nothing could be compared to the splendour of Handel's unique art of completion and developement of the themes of his "composition" and the all envelopping harmony of his continiously new creating themes within the work.. if you like Handel you feel especially in this work the comming : Messias...but words cannot tell you the wonder of all these precious sounds and brilliant baroque music you will --hear--- in Belshazzar...you should hear yourself ....
