5.0 out of 5 stars bravo Villazon! May 3 2009
By Trish Newnham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is up to the high standard found in Rolando Villazon's other presentations. Handel's baroque arias are new to me and I enjoyed listening to a great tenor venturing into a new area. Having such an experienced and accomplished orchestra working together with Rolando makes for a great musical achievement. The DVD also added colour and enjoyment. Trish
3.0 out of 5 stars Good performer for Romantic period operas Aug. 20 2013
By Tibor Dombi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm definitely no expert on opera but it seems to me that Villazon's voice is too big for Handel. Perhaps he should sing Romantic period operas instead. Otherwise his voice and singing is very good. The recorded sound and the orchestra is first rate too. Check your library first. Mine has a copy of this so I fortunately didn't have to buy this cd.
5.0 out of 5 stars Handel Arias: Rolando Villazon Dec 21 2012

Brilliantly executed by Mr. Villazon, a truly versatile performer. Amazing range and expression. A bonus DVD is included in this edition, featuring excerpts from several arias.
1.0 out of 5 stars Good CD, bad DVD. DVD is a joke - has only 3 arias out of 14. Feb. 6 2012
By Vadim Istomin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Good CD, bad DVD. DVD is a joke - has only 3 arias out of 14. The rest is just one interview broken into small segments, very annoying. If you want to buy this edition to have the DVD of his performance - do not waist your money.
5.0 out of 5 stars A "Myth-Buster" CD!! Nov. 22 2011
By Shelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Myth #1 = Baroque orchestras tend to focus on technical excellence rather than musical expression.
Myth #2 = Baroque vocal music conveys less passion than its Romantic counterpart.
Myth #3 = A Lyric Tenor cannot successfully sing Baroque music.

My collection includes Rolando Villazón's two other critically acclaimed Baroque recordings - both ensemble pieces, namely Monteverdi's "Combattimento di Tancredi", and Vivaldi's "Ercole sul Termodonte". So I was eager to hear this solo Handel album by an artist whose endeavours, however surprising, are always undertaken with musical intelligence, commitment and integrity.

I was immediately struck by the sparkling artistry of the Gabrieli Players, under the expert baton of Paul McCreesh (Myth #1 busted). Their animation just radiates and it is evident that this is their heartland territory. Secondly, Rolando Villazón's superb interpretation of this music dispels forever the notion that singing Baroque means hiding one's emotions under a flood of ornamented vocal acrobatics! (Myth #2 busted). Just as with his Romantic repertoire, you can feel his heart in his voice - whether the aria in question is a torrential outpouring, or a quiet soliloquy. I also enjoyed hearing new facets in his voice - as if a familiar gemstone was catching and reflecting a fresh ray of light.

In Ariodante's "Scherza, Infida" for example, he conveys his heartbreak as touchingly as any Rodolfo or Alfredo - while remaining true to the style required for music of this genre. And Bajazet's death scene from "Tammerlano" is absolutely arresting in its impact! Then there is his beautifully introspective rendition of "Pastorello D'Un Povero Armento" from "Rodelinda" - where the king, with all his luxury, power and wealth, yearns for the peaceful and untroubled sleep of the shepherd boy. And the beloved "Ombra Mai Fu" from "Serse" is simply delicious!

In interview on the bonus DVD (supplied with the Deluxe edition), Rolando Villazón talks of being driven to achieve excellence under the guidance of Paul McCreesh, while Mr McCreesh speaks of Mr Villazón's finely tuned vocal instrument, lack of vanity and absolute commitment to the music. This is obviously a partnership strengthened by mutual respect - and the fine result is obvious in the finished product.

So - that leaves only Myth #3. Can a Lyric Tenor successfully sing Handel? Assuredly YES ... especially if he is Rolando Villazón!
