Handel: Alessandro

AlessandroDECCA has released a magnificent new recording of Handel’s three act opera Alessandro.  Conducted by George Petrou with the Armonia Atenea orchestra (all on period instruments) this mostly Greek production is dazzling!  From the beginning French overture to the hymn of rejoicing at the end, this is Baroque performance that sizzles.  No, it’s not a REFINERSFIRE release, but we promised you tips about great performances besides our own (we aren’t selfish) and this is certainly a recording  you will want to buy. — Mike Linton
