HANDEL: ALEXANDER`S FEAST / ODE FOR ST. CECILIA`S DAY HWV 76

Produktbeskrivelse

“Neumann`s forces respond magnificently. Solo voices have a rare, natural ease. In Alexander`s Feast, Simone Kermes`s accompanied recitative… is breathtaking; Konstantin Wolff is thrilling in "Revenge Timotheus cries" and terrifyingly evocative as bassoons conjure up "a ghastly band [of ghosts"... The clarity...27 voices, while the orchestra, similarly proportioned, is splendidly taut. In short, this recording is an outstanding contribution to the Handel anniversary celebrations.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE

“Collegium Cartusianum play with suppleness, unforced strength in extrovert numbers and sensitivity in quieter and more lyrical moments… Simone Kermes`s melancholic delivery of the pitiful "He chose a mournful muse" is breathtaking… The Cologne Chamber Choir is excellent: the voices in the opening phrase of "The list`ning crowd" seem to float effortlessly... "Break his bands of sleep asunder" is sensational and the falling cadences evoking "heav`nly harmony" are beautifully balanced during the first chorus of the shorter ode.” GRAMOPHONE
