Product Description


Handel's first oratorio (a sacred opera seria, really) is loaded with goodies that excite musicians and audiences alike: glittering coloratura spectaculars, showy boasts for Lucifer, grave laments, sweet elegies, plenty of pictorial instrumental effects, and the tuneful, emotionally complex, central role of Mary Magdalene. Marc Minkowski and his forces have stiff competition, especially from Christopher Hogwood's old L'Oiseau-Lyre recording (grab that if it's reissued), featuring Kirkby and Kwella at their very best. Unfortunately, while Smith is unlistenable as Magdalene--she is way past her prime--everyone else is stunning. Massis as the Angel is Kirkby's equal; Maguire and Naouri fill their music with skill and passion; Ainsley makes the potentially sleepy role of St. John mouth-wateringly beautiful. The performance isn't flawless, but it's extraordinary--buy it. --Matthew Westphal

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant performance July 31 2000
By Anonym - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After reading a rather negative review of this recording, I just had to post another review saying that in my opinion this is one of the best Handel recordings on the market - the singers are excellent, especially Jennifer Smith and Linda Maguire and Minkowski's conducting is absolutely brilliant. The structure of the work is like that of an opera seria (including the da capo arias) - so if you are a fan of baroque opera, this one is an absolute must!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome and amazing perfomance and recording Aug. 15 2004
By HIFVB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This Haendel's Oratorio or sacred opera is absolutely a must for all baroque fans, and specially in this superb Mark Minkowski version. If you own a good hi-fi audio system you will perhaps find it as the perfect recording: tremendous soundstage, amazing natural and real presentation of all singers and instruments, perfect tonal balance, ......... almost unbeliavle.

The version itself is very warm, full of virtuosism by all singers and the orchestra. A true and superior musical enjoyment experience.
