Handel in German? Yuck! The truth is, there's no reason why he shouldn't be performed in what is, after all, his native tongue. After all, we've been translating other works into English without too much though about it. But live performance is one thing, recording is another. This production betrays its origins as a purely local project, and as such, it remains purely for local consumption. --David Hurwitz
 

CD Reviews

A traditional interpretation of a great work
10/14/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just love Gundula Janowitz. What a lovely voice singing such lovely music. There are moments of incredible beauty when the conviction of these artists(conductor, orchestra etc.) really impress. Fashion may be against this recording but there is a certain timelessness here."
