Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Tamerlano, HWV 18
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Tatar ruler Tamerlano (historically Timur-lenk), a descendant of Genghis Khan, defeated and captured the Turkish Sultan Bajazet at the battle of Angora in 1402. A series of plays and operas have been written to mark this historical event. In Handel's opera, although Tamerlano is already engaged to the Princess von Trapezunt, he falls in love with Bajazet's daughter. She, however, is fond of the Greek Prince Andronico.

Handel's timeless opera Tamerlano whose model is Nicholas Pradon's Tamerlan ou La Mort de Bajazet is brought to life in this live recording from the 50th Handel-Festipiele 2001 at the world famous Halle on the Saale. Conducted by Trevor Pinnock and with exquisite direction by Jonathan Miller Tamerlano stands as one of Handel's masterworks.
