Synopsis

Product Description
With her third solo album, soprano Danielle de Niese embodies Beauty of the Baroque with an album of favorite arias from the English, German, and Italian traditions, accompanied by the leading European Baroque orchestra The English Concert under Harry Bicket. Favorite arias including Handel's "Ombra mai fu" and highlights from Bach Cantatas are contrasted with solo songs by Purcell and Dowland, much loved Italian arias and sacred works. Since her earlier successes in the operas of Mozart, Danielle de Niese has become most closely associated with the music of the Baroque. The New York Times commented: "A voice seductive enough to woo gods as well as mortals." Decca's star countertenor Andreas Scholl joins Danielle de Niese for duets including Monteverdi's ravishing duet "Pur ti miro."
