Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Partenope
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...Christian Curnyn has as infallible a sense of tempo and musico-dramatic shape - in individual numbers, in whole scenes and acts - as the composer himself. The orchestral playing is light-fingered, colorful and sprightly, and the company commands a roster of the best singers among the younger generation of Handelians." - The Times

Penguin Guide
Central to the success of Christan Curnyn's well-paced performance is the glorious singing of Rosemary Joshua in the title-role of Partenope...Handsomely packaged, with each of the three Acts complete on a single disc, it is among the most attractive of rarities among Handel operas.
