About

In his setting of Orlando (drawn from Tasso’s Orlando furioso), Handel offers a score of a remarkable dramatic power, diversity and originality. Everything in the opera arouses admiration: the extremely varied scoring, the exuberant vocal writing, the rhythmic invention, the subtle melodies.

With a fantastic vocal set-up and his always excellent ensemble, Jean-Claude Malgoire has produced a recording that will permanently stay among the very best readings of the score. In the words of The Daily Telegraph, “the playing of La Grande Écurie is excellent... Christophe Dumaux gives a fruity account of the tremendous mad scene.”
