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 Fireworks and 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.
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.
