Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Purcell's 'Fairy Queen' was his grandest achievement, his most colourful score, with an emotional range from wit to mystery and much in between. The recording: "Vintage Purcell, in a performance that shows no signs of age, conveys everything but the elaborate stage directions" - Gramophone
