Synopsis

Album Description
2009 is the year of Handel's 250th birthday, and to celebrate CAvi-music releases this disc of by one of the top sopranos in the world. Features Berliner Barock Solisten, members of the Berlin Philharmonic, playing baroque music of the highest standard. "Alluring intimacy ... one of today's most versatile singer-actors." -- BBC Music magazine "It is impossible to imagine a more expressive performer than Christine Schäfer, who recites (or sings?) these melodramas with infinite subtlety, underlining each nuance with gestures as restrained as they are expressive." -- La Voix du Luxembourg "A miniature, radiant figure ... [Christine Schäfer] performs ... with crystalline clarity." -- Le Soir de Bruxelles
