Handel: Rodelinda - Opera in 3 Acts
KHCD-2013-008-3CDFL (STEREO) - Handel: Rodelinda (HWV 19) - Opera in 3 Acts - Teresa Stich-Randall; Maureen Forrester; Alexander Young; Hilde Rössl-Majdan; Helen Watts; John Boyden; Vienna Radio Orchestra conducted by Brian Priestman; Martin Isepp, harpsichord - Handel's 1725 opera of intrigue, passion, jealousy and rescue from prison, warmly recorded by Westminster in 1964 with a stunning vocal cast. This performance is certainly not a dry, every-note-accounted-for inscription; rather it is a heartfelt occasion, recorded in a large hall (Baumgarten, Vienna) with extraordinary vocal talent not to be heard again. Very much recommended. CD artwork included in download file.
