Produktbeskrivelse

Gramophone Magazine August 2018 Editor's Choice
BBC Music Magazine Opera Choice
 
Christopher Purves is renowned for both the powerful sense of dramatic conviction he brings to everything he undertakes, and for a vocal technique which must be heard to be believed. From Handel’s early cantata to selections from Italian opera and English oratorio, this is a recital from a very special singer indeed.
 
Some of Handel’s greatest music was written for bass-baritones, and in Purves finds its ideal interpreter. BBC *****
 
This superb follow-up [to Vol. 1] makes you wonder anew at the composer’s inventive variety…Purves is surely unique among today’s Anglophone singers in fusing an easily produced high baritone, by turns mellifluous and incisive, with a clean, resonant bass register… … Ever alive to texture and subtleties of colour, Arcangelo on their own give a fresh, spirited account of one of the Op 3 Concerti grossi.
