Notes & Reviews:

Counter-tenor Andreas Scholl has gained an enormous following for his many acclaimed recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label. Now, at age 32, Scholl is an exclusive Decca recording artist. Winner of two Gramophone Awards, he made an acclaimed debut at Glyndebourne last summer in Handel's Rodelinda. In his wonderful sounding debut album for Decca, Scholl is joined by Roger Norrington and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
