Handel: Imeneo / Spering, Hallenberg, Stojkovic, et al

Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Imeneo, HWV 41
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Imeneo' is perhaps the lightest and most intimate of all his stage works, treating its mythological plot with a hint of ironic detachment. There are no obvious hits in Handel's score, but plenty of charming, piquant music along with several numbers that strike a deeper note: Tirinto's brooding aria 'Pieno il core', for instance, or the impassioned trio where Rosmene is confronted by her two suitors." ***** - Richard Wigmore, BBC Music Magazine

Gramophone Magazine
Andreas Spering directs effectively and draws precise playing from his orchestra... this is an impressive recording

Penguin Guide
Johanna Stojkovic sings strongly, bright and clear in the most taxing divisions, while Ann Hallenberg as Tirinto is equally commanding with her warm, firm mezzo, rising superbly to the challenge of her big showpiece aria, Sorge nell'alma
