4.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of a Stretch but... April 15 2010
By M. Bish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is not the last word on elegant Handel singing and I wouldn't even say that it is "essential listening" for die-hard Baroque or Villazon fans, but it does give a new and interesting dimension to his art and (possible) direction to his career. The assured vocalism he delivers here is certainly on a par with Wunderlich's wonderful recordings of this music and, in the case of both of these great tenors, I suspect Handel himself would choose expressive utterance over elegant (but boring) singing - not that the two qualities must be mutually exclusive, and not that Villazon is sloppy. No, he actually acquits himself rather well even when the notes come fast and thick (which, this being Handel, they often do). The coloratura is fluent - if occasionally labored - and he manages a credible trill. I think, typically speaking, audiences respond to Villazon's great energy and commitment to whatever he's performing - that is his great gift and it is available in abundance on this release. Though this album does not show the same level of varied vocal niceties as previous recorded efforts (in terms of dynamic shading and text-based nuances), it is a good addition to Villazon's recorded output. There have been some detractors who complain about his having transposed some arias from higher keys but that tradition is one that Handel endorsed and practiced so I do not consider it to be a legitimate demerit when discussing this album. I bought the "deluxe" edition and if I had it to do over again, I would purchase the regular (single disc) version as the bonus DVD included in the aforementioned deluxe version is actually very short (less than 30 minutes) and not particularly well-produced. Basically, it seems that it was done as an afterthought. Furthermore, the mini-concert shows Villazon in less than top form and so the recorded versions are more than adequate. Anyway, now that Villazon's gone Baroque, I would love to hear him go Classical - why not an album of Mozart's arias for tenor? Mozart is so often treated as sacred with pallid and overly-reverent performances; Villazon is just such a performer who could turn that tradition on its ear.

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.
