Purcell: The Fairy Queen / Christophers, The Sixteen, et al

Performers Conductor Ensembles

Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
The Fairy Queen hardly an 'opera' in the conventional sense: its musical virtues lie in the composer's uncanny ability to summon a discrete, potent atmosphere whose capacity to move the listener lies outside a sustained dramatic context. The masques draw heavily on vernacular situations and a form of tragicomedy which requires a crafty hand in performance.
