Handel: Solomon Customer Reviews
Recorded 1984. The performance is good, although this work is too much pump and circumstance (and insufficiently dramatic) for me to appreciate. But if you like this work, I think this is a good buy.

John Elliot Gardiner and his troupe display Handel with bold, broad and bountiful sound in this 1984 historic set. This work exudes tumultuous choral heights with the Monteverdi Choir and Gardiner wants it heard to the heavens above.....and he gets it with this group. The English Baroque Soloists play to Gardiner's powerful direction. The soloists are all in their prime and at the top of their art; thoroughly enjoyed Watkinson and Argenta hitting every note with exact precision and poignancy. Rolfe Johnson owns the role hands down. All Handelian lovers made this set an essential...........and it is one of mine.
