HANDEL – DUETS
CONNOLLY - JOSHUA

This new Handel collection features two great Handelian singers, Sarah Connolly and Rosemary Joshua, accompanied by the English Concert conducted by Harry Bicket. The programme offers a carefully chosen selection from Handel Operas ‘Guilio Cesare’, ‘Belshazzar’, ‘Theodora’, ‘Ottone’, ‘Sosarme’, ‘Radamisto’, ‘Rodelinda’, ‘Agrippina’ and ‘Tamerlano’. Duets play a key role in Handel’s stage works; he understood the dramatic effectiveness of blending two voices together - generally those of a soprano heroine and castrato hero. Sarah Connolly is a highly sought after Artist who has performed a number of Handel roles on stage including Giulio Cesare for the Glyndebourne Festival. Rosemary Joshua has developed quite a reputation for her Handel roles, which include the title role in Semele on stage for which she was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award and on disc for Chandos. This album launches with a Wigmore Hall concert on April 1st. Also check out the saucy artwork on this disc.

“…Joshua and Connolly make a nicely complementary pair of Handelians. They phrase with purpose and direction, mirroring each other in the give-and-take of the contrapuntal passages, maintaining flowing lines even in the quieter, more spacious numbers.”
                                                                                    

Stephen Francis Vasta
 

Opera News (USA) - July 2010

“Admired individually as expert Handelian singers, together they [Joshua and Connolly] are perfectly attuned to each other’s (and Handel’s) musical gestures. The constant dovetailing and matching required is immaculately done, the balancing of words and notes achieved with remarkable consistency. On this occasions when they land on the same notes, there’s not a hair’s breadth between them, and whatever mood is to be conveyed, they capture it perfectly and in expressive union. Harry Bicket and the English Concert provide neat and lightly peppy playing. I suspect this will become a classic Handel recording.”

“Joshua and Connolly are an ideal partnership in these Handel highlights.”

“…The playing is crisp and the singing is polished and stylish, with Joshua, in particular, conveying infectious delight in this sophisticated music.”

…” I haven’t enjoyed a Handel vocal recital as much as this in a long time…”
“no Handelian will want to be without this disc. If you haven’t yet succumbed to the Handel bug, prepare to be seduced.”
