HANDEL, PURCELL - Composers

RICHARD EGARR - Conductor

CAROLYN SAMPSON - SOPRANO - Soloist

 

Described as a conductor “full of fizzy finesse”, Richard Egarr presents a celebration of Handel and Purcell. There’s a riot of colour in Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworksand in his Concerto Grosso Op 3 No 1, and exquisitely beautiful arias from his humorous musical drama Semele, delivered by the dazzling soprano Carolyn Sampson.

Purcell’s glimmering suite from the opera The Fairy Queen draws inspiration from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a bewitching tale celebrating the wonder and joy of love in all its forms. Purcell conjures up an enchanted world where the magical forces of nature reign supreme.

...CAROLYN SAMPSON’S PURE SOPRANO COSSETS THE WORDS, SAVOURING THEIR EXPRESSIVE IMPLICATIONS, RELISHING THEIR SHIFTS OF RHYTHM AND SUBTLY SIGHING WITH BLISS, YEARNING OR HEARTACHE...” The Telegraph

Sampson’s soprano voice has super-refined control of phrasing and dynamics
