Notes & Reviews:
Handel's musical illustration of Dryden's Alexander's Feast, first performed in 1736, was a critical and popular success. Twice a year some of the UK's finest baroque players and young vocal soloists come together in Edinburgh's Canongate Kirk to give sell-out concerts of the great works of Bach and Handel. Ludus Baroque's appearances are unmissable events in Edinburgh's calendar. Now, for the first time, listeners from further afield can experience the vibrancy of their festival-fuelled performances in this their debut recording. Alexander's Feast is the perfect showpiece for the vitality and abandon of Ludus Baroque and their rising-star soloists.Notes & Reviews:
