Notes & Reviews:
In his setting of Orlando, Handel offers us a score of remarkable dramatic power, diversity and originality. Orlando's mad scene and slumber aria are among the composer's most striking creations. Everything in the opera arouses admiration - the extremely varied scoring, the exuberant vocal writing, the rhythmic invention and the supple melodies. On this new recording from K617, Jean-Claude Malgoire and La Grande Écurie et la Chambre du Roy are joined by a cast of talented soloists in a fantastic production rivaling the best in the catalog.Notes & Reviews:
