Notes & Reviews:

To commemorate the 250th anniversary of Handel's death, Virgin Classics is releasing a 2-CD collection of his finest arias and duets. This generous selection includes such beloved arias as "Ombra Mai Fu" from 'Serse', the gripping "Scherza Infida" from 'Ariodante', and selections from two of his most popular stage works - 'Giulio Cesare' and 'Alcina'! The singers on this album are a virtual who's who of Handel opera, including Joyce DiDonato, Natalie Dessay, Ian Bostridge, Philippe Jaroussky, David Daniels, Stephanie Blythe, Veronique Gens, and more.
