Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Alcina
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"In his 1999 Paris Opera production, Christie defied expectations by choosing a non-Baroque specialist cast, with Renee Fleming, Susan Graham, Natalie Dessay and Juanita Lascarro - all better known for their Strauss, Berlioz, Offenbach and beyond. But he has worked his magic: this is a very French, highly decorated creation which fairly glistens with thoroughbred talent...Its underlying glory is, of course, Les Arts Florissants..." ***** -BBC Music
