HASH(0xa72d27e0) out of 5 stars Another Winner from Handel and MDG May 25 2006
By Robert M. Nichols - Published on Amazon.com
Okay. So I'm biased. Handel is my favorite composer. But even if he's not your favorite there are still many reasons to purchase this set of 3 CDs. If you enjoy baroque vocal music. If you enjoy wonderful singing and graceful music. Long, tuneful arias punctuated by brief recitatives. Also the production label for this CD is MDG and the acoustics for their recordings are always top-notch without any sort of soundmodifying manipulation. And how they can produce such a superior recording of 3 CDs for $20 and some change is beyond me. Anyway I'm not a knowledgeable music critic. I just know what I like though I do happen to think I have good taste in music. In my humble opinion music like Handel's is a privileged foretaste of what we will experience in Heaven. That may sound like hyperbole to some but not to those of us who are passionate about baroque music. If you're a seasoned Handel fan you must have this recording. If you're new to the baroque vocal music scene you also must have it. Hurry up and purchase before the good people at MDG come to their senses and double the price!

HASH(0xa7031744) out of 5 stars One of the best June 23 2013
By Henry B. Coons - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've had this CD for a couple of years or more and after many listenings remain fascinated. The CDs by MDG and George Petrou sometimes seem like a repertory company because so many of the roles are by some of my favorite singers (particularly Mary Ellen Nesi),and all that I have heard are very pleasing to me. This CD has the inestimable advantage of a complete libretto in Italian and English. With a little note taking (putting information from the front to the back of the liner notes) it is possible to easily follow the whole thing in detail without having to pay very much attention to exactly where you are. Altogether this is one of my very favorite CDs.

HASH(0xa7799894) out of 5 stars Absolutely beautiful. The singing of 'Se nei bosco resta solo' ... Feb. 8 2015
By Kiwimezzo - Published on Amazon.com

Absolutely beautiful. The singing of 'Se nei bosco resta solo' sung by Mata Katsuli as Arianna, abandoned at the entrance to the Labyrinth, is heart-rending. Her top notes are exquisite. I have heard this artist performing other works, but none better than this. Superb singing from the rest of the cast and immaculate playing and interpretation from the Orchestra of Patras under the sensitive baton of George Petrou.
