Handel: An Ode for St Cecilia's Day - Robert King          (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  Review by nickc February 13, 2005

I concur with Beardawgs excellent summary of this disc; what a lovely work the Ode to Cecilia is! Handel allows some of the instruments of the orchestra to shine (trumpet, cello, recorder and organ) while duetting them with great vocal writing. The King's Consort are one of the top period ensembles ... more
Bryan Ferry: Boys & Girls        (11 of 11 found this review helpful)
  Review by PaulHoncoop February 12, 2005

The years 1678 - 1685 were remarkable in at least one sense; I think I'm right in saying that born in that period were Vivaldi, Bach, Telemann and Handel! Telemann is a composer whose time has come (like Biber) I feel. Like Biber his music can be both profound and beautiful, but both composers also ... more
Wagner: Tannhauser - Gerdes        (13 of 13 found this review helpful)
  Review by Daland February 10, 2005

This recording of Wagner's Tannhäuser (Dresden version) was released on CD only a couple of years ago (at a bargain price). While the conductor is relatively unknown (he was Karajan's assistant in a number of projects), the cast is very strong, and the same can be said for orchestra and chorus. ... more
