Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Agrippina
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Della Jones gives a masterful performance in the title role. John Eliot Gardiner has not recorded many Handel operas, nor directed many in the theatre. But of course he is a fine and very experienced conductor of Handel and he has a sure feeling for tempo and for the character of each movement. The orchestral playing is beyond reproach. This recording is comfortably among the half-dozen finest recordings of Handel operas, and has a much more powerful cast than its only competitor, on Harmonia Mundi, to which it is much to be preferred." -Gramophone Magazine
